Please how long before we may retry after getting this error: "Error creating new registration :: too many registrations for this IP"

I forgot to remove the - - live option in my le64.exe script.

The initial version of le64.exe I downloaded from GitHub had an issue creating multiple --paths on windows.

By the time I updated to the latest version, and tried again I received this:

2017/09/20 12:35:05 Error creating new registration :: too many registrations for this IP

Please how long do I need to wait so I can attempt to generate the certs again?

You shouldn’t need to keep creating account registrations - 1 is almost always enough. I’m not familiar with le64, but you should look into their documentation and see if there’s a way to specify an account key or something so that it doesn’t keep attempting to create accounts.

Here’s the rate limit doc: https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/

Thanks,
I have seen that doc, i’m not sure which penalty applies in my case.

This one:

You can create a maximum of 10 Accounts per IP Address per 3 hours. You can create a maximum of 500 Accounts per IP Range within an IPv6 /48 per 3 hours. Hitting either account rate limit is very rare, and we recommend that large integrators prefer a design using one account for many customers.

Edit: The ACME protocol, and Let’s Encrypt, are kind of in the middle of replacing the term “registration” with “account”. But they’re equivalent.

I can live with 3 hours…
Thanks

It would still be helpful to figure out why it is creating a new account every time, because it’s not necessary to do so in order to get a new certificate.
