Issue with many certificates already issued

Dear Team:

I’d like to ask you for your help. I have deleted my droplet in DigitalOcean many times latetly because I am debuging another issue that I have, so it seams that I have applied multiple times the certification with Let’s Encrypt.

I can see here I have 7 certificates Id.

https://crt.sh/?q=www.esahora.cl

I have tried to deleted them with command “sudo certbot delete” or “sudo certbot delete --cert-name esahora.cl” but I am getting “No existing certificates found.”, because all settings that could have been have been dropped, cause I have purged my droplet.

Could please let me know how could I delete certificates already created?

My domain is: www.esahora.cl

I ran this command:sudo certbot --apache

It produced this output:There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: www.esahora.cl: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/

My web server is (include version): Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 18.04, Droplet

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:Digital Ocean

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): No

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):certbot 0.31.0

Hi @felipeEnc

please read the document.

Then you read that revoking / deleting certificates doesn’t reset the rate limit.

Looks like you have to wait. Never create certificates and delete these - that’s always wrong.

Ah - there are some checks of your domain - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=esahora.cl#ct-logs

You can create one certificate with both domain names.

Then store the private and the public key, so you can use the certificate 60 - 85 days.

Thanks for your reply Juergen.

1.-About this “Then store the private and the public key, so you can use the certificate 60 - 85 days.”, it means that I should have backup up both of the .pem file that were created and after creating a new Droplet I should have import them in my new Droplet, righ?

2.-Also now I have to wait until October 15 to be able to create a new certificate.

Is this right?
