Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. crt.sh | example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: www.balshawfogarty.co.za

I ran this command: dokku letsencrypt:enable balshaw-and-fogarty

It produced this output:
acme: error: 429 :: POST :: https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/acme/new-order :: urn:ietf:params:acme:error:rateLimited :: Error creating new order :: too many certificates (5) already issued for this exact set of domains in the last 168 hours: balshawfogarty.co.za,www.balshawfogarty.co.za, retry after 2023-09-06T18:10:22Z: see Duplicate Certificate Limit - Let's Encrypt

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes

i need to just ask if i can try creating a ssl again. fix most of the server problems just need to recreate the certificate one last time please.

You should use the certificates you already have. Where are those? There is no resetting the rate limits, you should wait. (Or, ahem, search this forum)


server was wiped out to upgrade / increase the application vs. so the cert* will be all gone.

There are some workarounds. I don't know if they'll be usable with your software. Search the forum.


just added another domain. was a work around it

In the future backup Certificates and Keys prior to wiping a system. :slightly_smiling_face:


true. :slight_smile:
