New cert request error

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: mx1.rossanouk.net
We’ve had a problem and have been building new a server, when we go to get a new cert, we get an error to many request, but we do not have a copy of the original.

any help would be gratefully received

Hi @vasman

And share your exact error message.

Perhaps you have to wait 7 days.

PS: Checked your domain there are 5 identical certificates - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=mx1.rossanouk.net#ct-logs

If you don't have one of these, you have to wait.

If you create a new certificate, then make a backup before you destroy your server.

Hi,

As @JuergenAuer said, you’ve already got 5 certificates in the past 7 days, do you currently have any of those certificates? If not, you’ll need to wait until 12-28 (or 29, depends on your timezone) to get a new certificate.

Thank you
