Rate limit too many certificates

An unexpected error occurred:

There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains:

i ran into an issue trying to renew on our server, and now i am stuck, is there any way to fix this? i had an issue with the old cert, and i removed it, and the new cert, and now i cant renew for a week.

You've issued FIVE certificates before hitting that specific rate limit. You might have deleted the old certificate, but I hope you didn't delete all the five NEW certificates, right?

Hi @ToddG

your have already the answer.

i did because there was an issue, but i added a www.test domain, and it renewed and working now.

What issue would make you purposely generate five certificates without being able to use any of them? May I point out the staging environment for testing things? That way you won't run into rate limits that soon and you won't abuse the Let's Encrypt production servers with unnecessary added load.
