I created 5 domain certificates

I created 5 domain certificates, I didn't know about the restriction. I reinstalled the virtual hosting and lost all the certificates. Please help me how to issue a new certificate for the same domain.

I don't have this virtual machine anymore

Hi @Tanry,

In this case you will have hit the Let's Encrypt duplicate certificate rate limit. If you don't have other names to include on your certificate (which could potentially make it non-duplicative with the earlier certificates), you'll have to wait a week before you can issue more Let's Encrypt certificates again. You could also try using a different ACME CA as there are a couple of others out there that may give you a free certificate using the same client software (with different policies than Let's Encrypt's).


Hi @Tanry,

Here is a list of ACME CA Comparison - Posh-ACME

And specifically for Let’s Encrypt testing and debugging are best done using the Staging Environment as the Rate Limits are much higher.
