So i accedently "reached my limit" some how


#1

Meanwhile I am trying to get my other subdomains SSL Sertificates I thought first adding the subdomains to my domain at the renewal and forcing it to renewal, meanwhile that corrupted it so i deleted it to try to redo everything as i did first when i downloaded letsencrypt and now im stuck with the Reached my limit. Tips?


#2

My quick fix was copying cert1.pem chain1.pem privkey1.pem fullchain1.pem to /etc/letsencrypt/live/—/
And renaming them without 1, of course this worked but i am guessing i am going to struggle again when i required to renew my SSL Certificates.


#3

There is a limit of 5 certs / domain / 7 days. So when it comes to renewal you should be OK as long as it’s more than 7 days away.


#4

Yes but wouldn’t i still have error with the renewal config beeing deleted?


#5

depending exactly what was deleted, then you may need to create a new certificate rather than using the auto renew for the first time.


#6

Well the renewal configuration for current domain (only have 1 domain)


#7

personally I don’t use the official letsencrypt, so I don’t know for certain I’m afraid, someone else may be able to answer.


#8

Oh, you’re one of the beta testers? :stuck_out_tongue: I guess i came to late for becoming one.


#9

I was a beta tester, but it was more that the official client didn’t fit my requirements ( I wanted to automate certs on remote servers where I couldn’t install the official client ), so I wrote my own client specifically for that ( getssl ) which is what I use. I’ve nothing against the official client, it just didn’t fit my requirements, which is why I can’t really give detailed advice on the official client.

Sounds interesting :slight_smile:


#11

What is the difference between the Full certificate and the Staging one?


#12

The staging one is signed by “Happy Hacker” rather than LE, so it isn’t recognised as trusted in browsers - other than that ( and not having the rate limits) it’s exactly the same. So great for testing, but not what you want for your live site :wink:


#13

oh, so that’s the talk about Happy Hacker :smiley: I am afraid I do not know too much about the SSL Certificates but I am willingly to learn fast :smiley: And you’re right, but Is there a possibility to use Lets Encrypt for MySQL SSL Encryption?


#14

Yes, you can use a standard SSL cert for MySQL SSL connections.
