Hi @Sengolda,

It’s possible your Droplet gets too much worked up and kills your bot automatically in order to avoid any issues. What I’ll suggest is checking your /var/log/messages file for any KILL signals.

You’ll most probably need to upgrade if you notice these signals. This means your Droplet was not able to co-op with the load your bot was creating.

  • Oh ok, i think what you said is right, because i tried running a bot with only 1 command in the same droplet without having the other bot running and it was running fine, so i think my droplet isn’t powerful enough for my bot, so i will update it to a $10 or $15 one, thank you for replying to my question.
