having to renew the certificate now expired, I found myself with this error:
Attempting to renew cert from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/www.mysite.com.conf produced an unexpected error: urn: acme: error: rateLimited :: too many failed authorizations recently: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/. Skipping.
Client with the currently selected authenticator does not support any combination of challenges that will satisfy the CA.
To perform the renewal, first in: cd / etc / letsencrypt,
and by root launch the command: certbot -q renew --apache.
Unfortunately the error you pasted isn’t the helpful one - it’s just telling us there were too many failed attempts in the past hour. If you try again now, you’ll probably get a different one that will give us more information about what’s actually failing. If you get the same rate limited error, give it bit and try again, the failed validations limit is a rolling window of sixty minutes, so it shouldn’t take too long to clear up.
Detail: Connection reset by peer
To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
entered correctly and the DNS A record (s) for that domain
contain (s) the right IP address. Additionally, please check that
your computer has a publicly routable IP address and that no
firewalls are going to be the server from communicating with the
client. If you’re using the webroot plugin, you should also verify
that you are serving files from the webroot path you provided.
My boss has warned me now that the management of site domains has recently been handed over to another company, and that we only manage the website. could this be the problem?
