#1

i’ve installed ssl several times on this domain because i’ve some issues setting up my wordpress blog but when i’ve everything set up now installing ssl has failed because i tried it several times before how i can fix this?

My domain is: www.pupnova.com

I ran this command: /opt/letsencrypt# ./letsencrypt-auto --apache -d pupnova.com -d www.pupnova.com

It produced this output:

An unexpected error occurred:

Hi @hoodiz1,

You have issued 5 certificates covering the same two domains pupnova.com & www.pupnova.com so you have reached the limit of 5 duplicated certificates per 7 days.

You have two options:

1.- Wait 3 days, till 2018-Nov-08 20:22 UTC then you could issue a new cert for your domains.

2.- Add a new domain or subdomain to your certificate, for example api.pupnova.com (of course that domain should be configured in your web server):

/opt/letsencrypt# ./letsencrypt-auto --apache -d pupnova.com -d www.pupnova.com -d api.pupnova.com

If you can add a subdomain you could issue a new cert right now because it won’t be a duplicated certificate.

Note: You should have 5 certificates, are you sure you don’t have them?. did you remove them?.

Cheers,
sahsanu
