hi @AlexanderVozmitel

Can you explain your problem space a bit more?


Randomly deleted the folder with letsencrypt.
But to issue a new certificate does not let says the limit is exceeded.

When executing the command:
letsencrypt certonly --webroot -w /var/www/public_html --rsa-key-size 4096 --email --agree-tos -d

Gives an error:
An unexpected error occurred:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new cert :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains:
Please see the logfiles in /var/log/letsencrypt for more details.
letsencrypt.log.txt (36.6 KB)

Unfortunately, this is true: there were 6 different certificates created for this domain yesterday.

Thus, you are reaching the limit of duplicate certificate issuance.

Let’s Encrypt does not ever possess the private keys associated with certificates, so if you really deleted all of the associated information, you just have to wait for the rate limit to time out (and then make sure that you don’t create a large number of duplicate certificates in a short time in the future). No form of account recovery could allow you to regain the private keys corresponding to the certificates, nor affect the processing of the rate limits.
