There were too many requests


I receive the message:

An unexpected error occurred:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error finalizing order :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains:, see

I was experiencing problems on the server, so there have been countless attempts.

Can the unlock be done?


Hi @rbogdanowicz

there are a lot of certificates:;include_subdomains:false;

Where are these? Isn’t it possible to use on of these? Some have one, some have two domain names.

If you have trouble to create a certificate, first use the test system. It has it’s own limits.

No. Normally, create one certificate, then use it 60 - 85 days, then create the next.


Hello @JuergenAuer,
Thanks for you reply!

I just know how to install via command:
sudo certbot --apache -d -d

Is there another way to reuse the previous certificates?

Thanks again…


What says

certbot certificates


No certs found.

I created a new droplet =/


Then you have to wait one week.

Letsencrypt certificates are free, but creating certificates requires resources. Resources are always limited, so the number of certificates is limited. Revokation wouldn’t help.
