There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new authz :: too many currently pending authorizations


#1

I do not have any auto-updates in the crontab
limit is not exhausted -all domains renewed by hands,

command line: certbot certonly -d zenitoo.win -d www.zenitoo.win -d m.zenitoo.win

ps: ubuntu 16.04, latest certbot from ppa:certbot/certbot
pps: certificate originally was obtained on another machine

any suggestions?


#2

found cronjob!

0 */12 * * * root test -x /usr/bin/certbot -a ! -d /run/systemd/system && perl -e ‘sleep int(rand(3600))’ && certbot -q renew

Perhaps this is the reason for the exhaustion of limits

where it is possible to look through the list of domains which is controlled by a certbot?

I have hundreds of domains…part of them managed manually and issued on another host(separate account)


#3

See the output of the command certbot certificates


#4

I have disabled all renew requests for 12+ hours

I still get an error
"Error creating new authz :: too many currently pending authorizations"

how do I clear the pending queue for authorization?


#5

The way to clear your pending authorizations is to complete (succeed or fail) them.

I wrote such a tool to do this here:

However take care that the act of completing the pending authzs may just cause you to hit other types of rate limits.

Thanks it helped!

it would be great if this functionality was included in the certbot client!
