How does the limit expiration work for requesting certificates?


I’m setting up a server and was having issues with the setup, so kept blowing it away and starting again. It’s my first time using lets encrypt/certbot & I found out I hit the limit for certificates requested.

I get I screwed up, so I’m waiting, just wondering if I should just try once a day to see if the limit has been lifted, or if hitting the 5 certs just locks it for a week? or if it just locks it until the first cert request is a week old and allows me to request one more.

Basically how long should I wait to request a new cert.


#2 will give you an exact date when your rate limit will lift.

Additional attempts while the rate limit is in effect will not extend your rate limit.


Appreciate the quick reply. 100% answered the question, thank you.
