Im wonder if i hit the rate limit?



I have used for generating ssl certificates. However, I requested twice of the certificate with same FQDN within short period (around 10 minutes)(i’ll explain why below). I received the certificate successfully after first submission. The differences between two submissions is that I didn’t fill out my CSR on first submission. However, I was aware that the web service is based on Tomcat and I needed to request a certificate with my own CSR. Therefore, I filled out the second submission with my CSR. With second submission for the certificate I got the result below,

Certificate signature failed. If you supplied your own CSR make sure the domains on it match what you put on SSLForFree. If there is a rate limiting error at the end of this paragraph certificates per Domain is currently 5 per 7 days. Try asking Lets Encrypt to increase the limit or wait 7 days. Rate limits should increase in the near future. { “type”: “urn:acme:error:malformed”, “detail”: “Error parsing certificate request. Extensions in the CSR marked critical can cause this error:”, “status”: 400 }

Im wonder if i hit the rate limit? I’ve only done the submission for twice. Could it possible reach the limit?

My domain


From that error, no it doesn’t look like you hit the rate limit.

Can you provide your CSR ?
