I am struck with mqtt installation and created many instances of certificate by deleteing and creating droplets on digital ocean.
Please delete all the instances

My domain is: ilmc.xyz

I ran this command:

sudo apt remove certbot

It produced this output:

An unexpected error occurred:
Error creating new order :: too many certificates (5) already issued for this exact set of domains in the last 168 hours: ilmc.xyz, retry after 2023-04-16T09:57:15Z: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/duplicate-cetificate-limit/

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
ubuntu 20.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
digital ocean

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):

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

That's not possible as also noted in the rate limit documentation.

Please don't do that.


No, it didn't. I don't know why you thought apt remove certbot would do anything to help with your problem, but no matter why you thought that, it didn't produce this output.

The problem is that you've abused the Let's Encrypt services. You've asked them to do work for you in creating certs, and then you've thrown them away. Deleting the certs (which you've already done), revoking the certs (if you could do it), removing or reinstalling certbot, or whatever, won't restore the work you've thrown away.

Wait until the time the message tells you (really, it isn't hard to understand), and you'll then be able to issue another cert. Take the time until then to figure out how to stop abusing the Let's Encrypt services.
