Pease help Letsencrypt creating multiple certificates and ending with limit

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. |, so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

Nginx reverse proxy -> wordpresss Docker container

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know):

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
CWP pro (centos web Panel)
The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): certbot 1.20.0

The CWP generated several certificates, now I'm trying to create a certificate and it says it exceeded the limit.
I really need your help to release only 1 certificate. is very urgent. I was going to launch the site today.
I'm stuck without getting it, because I don't have the old panel to get the private key to revoke.
I can't revoke or create.

Please ask for a help.

If you have to pay any release fees, please advise

You have issued more than 20 certificates which are still valid that could be used.

Let's Encrypt does not have a way to override this limit. And, revoking a certificate will not help. One of the 5 duplicate certs of your current limit was issued on Dec 1 so you have a couple more days before you can issue another with just that name. See the Overrides section on the Rate Limit page.

You must find out why you are issuing so many certificates and stop doing that

Try getting a cert from another free and ACME friendly CA.


Thank you for clarifying any questions.
I don't understand why the CWP pro is doing this.

but your alternative tip gave me a light. I didn't know there were other free ones.
