Error SSL install

Hello, how are you, I'm new to this issue of certificates; I have a zimbra server, it gave me an error, I tried several times, I could see the error it was giving, but I couldn't correct it anymore because I got this message that I don't know how to solve it!

Can someone guide me or help me please!!!

I detail my installation method used.
yum -y install epel-release
yum -y install python-certbot-apache
systemctl stop httpd
su -zimbra -c "zmcontrol stop"
certbot -d -m certonly

  • Select option 2 "Automatically use a temporary webserver (standalone)"

After here it gives me problems with the following error that comes out:
Account registered.
Requesting a certificate for
An unexpected error occurred:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many certificates (5) already issued for this exact set of domains in the last 168 hours: see https://letsencrypt. org/docs/rate-limits/
Please see the logfiles in /var/log/letsencrypt for more details.

Please use one of the previously issued five (!!!) perfectly fine certificates. Thank you.


Hi @seroficom and welcome to the LE community forum :slight_smile:

Please review their recommendation:
Installing a LetsEncrypt SSL Certificate - Zimbra :: Tech Center

If you run "certbot certificates", you should see that you already have a cert.
You can skip that part.
