Domain blocked by Let's Encrypt when trying too many times the request to sign it


Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

My domain is:

Its blocked because I was trying to use Let’s encrypt manually and tried too many times to generate the certificates.


What is the exact error you’re receiving?


ValueError: Error signing certificate: 429 {
“type”: “urn:acme:error:rateLimited”,
“detail”: “Error creating new cert :: Too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains:”,
“status”: 429


This indicates you’ve hit the Duplicate Certificate rate limit. I can verify that from the certificate transparency logs Let’s Encrypt has issued 6 certificates with that domain name. You will have to wait 7 days before you can issue for the exact same set of hostnames again. in the meantime adding another hostname would avoid hitting this limit for the already issued certificates.

I’d definitely recommend using the staging environment while you work out the kinks in your process.
