Certificate renew

My domain is:

I ran this command:
certbot certonly --nginx -d zn09.m2mcontrol.com.br

It produced this output:
too many failed authorizations recently: see Failed Validation Limit - Let's Encrypt

My web server is (include version):
nginx version: nginx/1.10.3

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Debian GNU/Linux 9

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):
certbot 0.28.0

I have exceeded certificate renewal attempts. Would you fellows be able to release the renewal for this domain?

No, rate limits cannot be "reset" manually.

It seems you're trying to renew (with the incorrect command) on the production environment. While of course renewals should be done initially on that production environment, when something isn't going as planned, it's best to switch to the staging environment to prevent exactly these kind of rate limits.

After switching to the staging environment, please fix whatever wasn't going according to plan on the production environment. When you've fixed whatever was wrong only then switch back to the production environment.


Also that version of Certbot is very old; the current version is Certbot 1.31.0 Release


No problem man. It's staging. The production environment is ok. Thanks

Thanks man. It's really too old. I will update this.


Are you hitting rate limits on staging?
