Rate Limit -Confirmation

Used win-acme.v1.9.9.0 on server 2012
Ran Letsencrypt renew all but had several failures due to logged in user rights.
Trying again using correct admin user account, but seeing rate limit message.
When can I try to renew again?

Which exact rate limit message are you seeing?

The answer to your question depends on which rate limit you hit.

The durations for each type of rate limit are described on https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/ .


My problem is I don’t do this very often and forget. Pretty lame huh.
Thought I wrote it all down, but not detailed enough.

[EROR] Error authorizing [IISBinding] rds.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com (SiteId 1) [ @ %S

That rate limit is 5 failed attempts per hour.

So you can try again soon - or use the staging environment to test that things are working before doing it for real.
