Hi, I blocked my domain due to too many certificate requests.
I am running a nginx Docker image using https://github.com/DanielDent/docker-nginx-ssl-proxy, on AWS.
The reason this happened is because the configuration in my docker-compose.yml file was not properly setting a volume. Therefore, every time a deployment was performed, the previous certificate would be lost and a new one requested.
Before, it was:
volumes: - "/etc/letsencrypt"
I changed to:
volumes: - "/opt/data/letsencrypt:/etc/letsencrypt"
Thanks to this fix, the certificate is not lost anymore at each restart. I tested using the staging endpoint and indeed no new certificate is requested when a deployment is made.
The error produced before was:
An unexpected error occurred: There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new cert :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: beta.conftree.com: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/
Would be possible to unblock my domain? Sorry for having wrongly used Let’s Encrypt previously.
