Hi @amakarov

what's your question after reading the link shared in the error message?

There is your complete answer.

I didn't multiple issue of certificate. I have only one domain in this IP. And certificate has expired. I tried to renew, and this error appears.

You did. 5 times, 4 times not required.

PS: Normally, Plesk should do these things automatic. Looks like your Plesk configuration is buggy -> ask your hoster.

I installed fresh Plesk panel with new IP address. When can I sign certificate?
Because in too many certificates already issued. When can I check?
Thanks in advance.

Next time you should be able to issue a new cert for your domain would be: Thu Feb 11 02:28:00 UTC 2021

But as @JuergenAuer said, you must fix your installation/the workflow you are following or you will hit the rate limits again.
