Let's Encrypt does not allow me to issue a certificate

I would like to know how I can issue a certificate for my subdomain: motos.honda.com.gt because by mistake several certificates were issued and we exceeded the limit. It was because of server technical errors but now I can not issue certificates, could you help me? what should I do? I have searched and in searches it says that I have to wait 7 days but is there anything else I can do?

The first certificate was issued at 2018-05-24 00:38 UTC, so you can issue 1 more duplicate certificate at 2018-05-31 00:38.

You can bypass the duplicate certificate rate limit by adding a second (sub)domain, like www.motos.honda.com.gt or abc123.honda.com.gt or totally-different.example.net.

Thanks for your answer, do not you know if there is any way to download the certificates previously issued?

You can download them from crt.sh, among other places:


(Skip the ones that say “Summary: Precertificate” at the top.)

You should be able to download them from the Let’s Encrypt API if you still have the URLs.

You can’t use the certificates unless you saved their private keys, though.
