I’ve noticed that certificate for our issues tracker has expired. There is a cron job that runs every day to renew certificate (in case it is about to expire). When I’ve logged onto the server there were a lot of cron jobs stuck (running some perl script).
I’ve killed them all and ran renew manually. Got “too many currently pending authorization” error. How could I fix this issue?
Thanks for your help!

My domain is:
I ran this command (same command is ran daily - it used to work fine before):
sudo letsencrypt -n --standalone --pre-hook ‘systemctl stop apache2.service’ --post-hook ‘systemctl start apache2.service’ renew
It produced this output:
