Limit of certificates


#1

Good day. I was generate 5 certificates in 1 day in my ispmanager panel, because i was have troubleshoting with vds server, now i fix all problem’s, but i can’t generate, because rate limit. Can i generate only 1 certificate without waiting 7 days, or where i can find history or list of my generated certificates? Maybe you can deactivate all sertificates for my website, and i will generate new?
My website: vgbox.ru
My webserver: nginx

Hi @YakimJan

there

https://transparencyreport.google.com/https/certificates?cert_search_auth=&cert_search_cert=p:dmdib3gucnU6ZmFsc2U6ZmFsc2U6NDQyODYyNDQ5ODAwODg1MzgyNzpFQUU9&cert_search=include_expired:false;include_subdomains:false;domain:vgbox.ru;issuer_uid:4428624498008853827&lu=cert_search_cert

you see your pre- and your leaf certificates, 5 created in the last days.

So you have to wait.

Why isn’t it possible to use one of these certificates?


#3

I had a problem with the server, which I solved and for this reason I had to reissue certificates.

I want to use any certificate from this list, can I do it?


#4

If you don’t have the private keys, these signed public keys are useless. You need always the public and the private key to use a certificate.

Are the certificates + keys are deleted?


#5

Yes, because i generated certificates and keys from ispmanager panel and panel doesn’t backup it, and i was reinstall panel :frowning:

The limit is the “Duplicate Certificate limit”.

We also have a Duplicate Certificate limit of 5 certificates per week. A certificate is considered a duplicate of an earlier certificate if they contain the exact same set of hostnames, ignoring capitalization and ordering of hostnames. For instance, if you requested a certificate for the names [ www.example.com , example.com ], you could request four more certificates for [ www.example.com , example.com ] during the week. If you changed the set of names by adding [ blog.example.com ], you would be able to request additional certificates.

So if you add or remove a domain name you can create a new certificate. So you can create two certificates with only one domain name. But then you need two vHosts.

I don’t know if this Ispmanager supports such things.

You mean, i can create for example certificate for blog.test.ru and use this certificate for test.ru site?


#8

You can create one certificate with three domain names

vgbox.ru
www.vgbox.ru
blog.vgbox.ru

but to do that, you need a subdomain blog. Then you can use this certificate with vgbox.ru + www.vgbox.ru.

Blocked is the unique combination vgbox.ru + www.vgbox.ru.
