How to restart after deleting docker-compose-letsencrypt-nginx-proxy-companion?


Hi, usual noob year.

I’m revamping my website ( with docker, in order to learn.

I’m using docker machine on digital ocean

I did find and used docker-compose-letsencrypt-nginx-proxy-companion

Everything seemed ok after the main domain registry, but then I started having trouble while registering my subdomain.

After I while I could read on the logs that I did do too many attempt and I was locked down.

Out of frustration I stopped, removed, and deleted all dockers and volumes and went back to nginx-proxy

Now when I install and try to connect to my website I get



How do I fix that? Should I go back to letsencrypt and revoke my requests? Changing email for registration could help?



Hi @lucamoiana

you have 6 entries:

Three are precertificates, three are leaf certificates. So you should be able to create one or two new certificates. No certificate with www found. You should create one certificate with both domain names (www + non-www).

I don’t see a certificate error, instead a ConnectFailure of your https - version.

But this isn’t a problem if you don’t have a valide certificate. And your http - /.well-known/acme-challenge setting looks good.

If you have deleted the last certificate created yesterday ( ), create one new certificate and install it.
