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. https://crt.sh/?q=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:


ia-ent.com
rr-magazine.com

Thanks!

10 in the last 7 days.

Where are these? Why don’t you use one of these certificates?

Create one certificate, then use it 60 - 85 days, then create the next. But not weekly 10 certificates.

I was using this guys script:

https://github.com/rehmatworks/runcloud-letsencrypt

Because I was using run cloud. I had to upgrade the server and no longer using runcloud. Can you please fix this. Can you delete those certificates so I can start over again? Please.

Thank you

The rate limit can’t be removed.

Where are these certificates? Did you delete these? Then you have to wait.

Hi @moderndayfreak,

Please review the rate limits at https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/. I highly recommend using the staging API when using a new client or testing a new configuration.

Yes sir. I reformatted the server and installed the latest version of Ubuntu.

How long would I have to wait?

Please check my older answer.

60-85 days is when I can get another certificate?
