Error creating new order :: Too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command: certbot certonly --manual --preferred-challenge dns --server -d ‘*’ -d ‘

It produced this output: An unexpected error occurred:

I had gone through the docs. I want to know either I will be able to create cert or not and if yes when I will be able to do so and if no what should I do to make it possible.

You have already created certificates. Why isn’t it possible to use one?

Create one certificate, then use it 60 - 85 days.

PS: There is already a check of your domain, ~~4 hours old -

15 certificates, created yesterday and today.

Sadly I don’t have any files related to the ssl as I already execute delete command to delete them. Could you help me to retrieve any certificate and the txt value I need to add in my dns provider.

You have to read the link. And you have to read the screenshot. Next Letsencrypt certificate …

PS: It’s wrong to delete certificates. So you have to wait.
