I hit the limit on requests | need help configuring I cannot figure out what I did wrong

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. crt.sh | example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: mail.trykit.net

I ran this command:
certbot certonly --webroot -d mail.trykit.net -w /var/www/html
It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): iRedMail

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu
unbuntu 22.04
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
self hosted
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
iRedMail Admin latest version
The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): I installed certbot today

Hi @Rayd51, and welcome to the LE community forum :slight_smile:

This ordering of the parameters/information is incorrect:

See: User Guide — Certbot 2.7.0.dev0 documentation (eff-certbot.readthedocs.io)

We need more than that - there are several different ways that certbot can be installed.
All are not equal.
Please refer to the recommended installation methods found here: Certbot Instructions | Certbot (eff.org)

The contents of the log file would be helpful:


Alright, I will get those to you. But I also found some issues with my dns records on cloudflare I was using the wrong IP I was using the local ip instead of the public ip


I think I messed up things even more. I figured out my ip on ubuntu was not static so I attempted to fix that. And I cannot tell if I fixed it or made it worse because now I can not even connect via ssh and have to go to the computer manually. And I do not know much about the ubuntu command line or how to use it I just attempt to follow tutorials and posts online to guide me and there is so many different answers and commands to a single problem and they end up making it worse.
