We’re running several websites on an AWS instance running Amazon’s Linux distro. Amazon’s Linux is not well supported by certbot, but there are instructions that I’m following at: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/SSL-on-an-instance.html#letsencrypt
I ran the following sudo ./certbot-auto --debug
I am getting the following error after trying to generate a cert for one on our sites - get.wa.gov
Error: urn:acme:error:rateLimited :: There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new cert :: too many certificates already issued for: wa.gov
I’ve been googling and reading lots of docs, in particular about rate limits. As far as I can tell we’re running into the certificates per registered domain limit of 20 per week. There are a number of other state agencies in the .wa.gov domain that are already using Let’s Encypt and Washington is very decentralized, so it’s not feasible to track down all of the different administrators at all of the different state agencies that are using LE. It looks like we’re just too late to the party and are basically screwed and can’t use LE due to the large number of requests, but I’m posting to see if anyone has any suggestions. Thanks.
