Reach ssl limit

hi i reach ssl limit but i need to do it now is there some option ? i cant wait so long

Hi @dimension,

Which limit did you reach?

Some of the limits reset after one hour, and others after one week.

If you reached the duplicate certificate limit, you can issue more certificates immediately by adding additional names to the certificates (so they’re no longer exact duplicates), such as by adding an additional subdomain.

Error: SSL certificate cannot be obtained for app-peter. The most obvious reasons are that any of your domains aren’t pointed to your server or SSL limit is reached.

Unfortunately, that error message isn’t specific enough to be helpful. Note that it says that these are merely “the most obvious reasons” but not that they’re the true reasons.

Is this message displayed by a hosting provider’s web interface? If so, I would suggest asking the hosting provider’s support to determine the specific reason for the failure.

i am hosting provider

What software do you use that gave this message?

What’s your domain name?
Have you checked your domain with ?

Can you get some more detailed logs from rcssl or find the Certbot logs in /var/log/letsencrypt?

yes i checked and it say move to community lets :smiley:

there is lots of logs which one ?

Maybe the most recent log file? It might contain a specific error.

can i send u private ?

I’d rather not. We’re trying to help you for free with a free service, in the hope that the public and other users in the future will benefit from seeing this conversation.

The log files from Certbot do reveal which domain names you host, but they don’t contain secrets that would allow someone to issue certificates for your sites.
