On FreeBSD using NGINX I am attempting to move ssl to letsencrypt using certbot.
I have other domains working fine, but I had 5 failed attempts in an hour. (The failure messages did not mention what comes next)
New attempts to register a cert for a new domain now fail.
with this error:
An unexpected error occurred:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many failed authorizations recently: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/
On the mentioned page it indicates
There is a Failed Validation limit of 5 failures per account, per hostname, per hour. This limit is higher on our staging environment, so you can use that environment to debug connectivity problems.
If you’ve hit a rate limit, we don’t have a way to temporarily reset it. You’ll need to wait until the rate limit expires after a week.
Does this mean I have to wait a week due to 5 failed attempts in an hour to setup the new cert for a domain?
Thank you for the clarification
