Let's Encrypt Unable to Issue/Renew SSL on DirectAdmin Server

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: ultranode.tk

I ran this command: I ran Issue SSL from DirectAdmin Web UI

It produced this output:
2020/07/28 12:25:25 [INFO] [ultranode.tk, www.ultranode.tk] acme: Obtaining SAN certificate
2020/07/28 12:25:25 Could not obtain certificates:
acme: error: 429 :: POST :: https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/acme/new-order :: urn:ietf[image]arams:acme:error:rateLimited :: Error creating new order :: too many new orders recently: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/, url:
Certificate generation failed.

My web server is (include version): LiteSpeed 5.4.8 Build 2

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): CentOS 7 with Cloudlinux

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: BaseZap

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): DirectAdmin 1.61.3

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): Acme v2.0 and Let’s encrypt client 2.0.7 in DirectAdmin

Hi @sdeepakbz

For users of the ACME v2 API you can create a maximum of 300 New Orders per account per 3 hours. A new order is created each time you request a certificate from the Boulder CA, meaning that one new order is produced in each certificate request. Exceeding the New Orders limit is reported with the error message too many new orders recently .

You have created 300 new orders in 3 hours.

It’s your own server, so it’s not a bug in a provider application.
