Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. |, so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

Then you'll have to wait for it to expire. If you could share a bit more detail (like the exact error), we might be able to give some other guidance. But the rate limits aren't going to be listed just because you busted them--that's what the staging environment is for.

Hmm. There's no rate limit for which 200 is the relevant number, and certainly nothing weekly. See for yourself:


Hi @Rehan, I see you had a previous LE cert that you have installed now. :clap:

LE certs will not renew before 30 days of expiry, so you won't be able to renew your cert before 22 September. If you wish to check your setup before actually attempting renewal, use LE's staging environment. That way you won't run into a rate limit. Once you're satisfied everything is in order you may renew your cert in the normal fashion. If you run into any problems, we're here to help. :smiley:
