To many requests


#1

Hello,

first i tried to establish a certificate for my imap.my.domain mail.my.domain and smpt.my.domain using a pattern from a website via copy and paste. Unfortunately, in my hast I have forgotten to replace the domian with my own one. I therefor always got a message like “error the domain ends not of a public addr.” After only three attempts :slight_smile: I have recognized the mistake and replaced the donain with the rigth one. But to late it allready
produced the error “There where too many requests…”. After that i treid it again with cert bot -apache" and additionaly with -froce -renew. Of couse with the same unlucky results. Is there any way or chance for me to fix the miss i have made? And if, can i do the certyficate verification for apache and postfix with a singel command? As you have allready notiesed , I am not skilled at all! Thank you for your time and help.

My domain are: agital.de ; www.agital.de ; mail.euve264659.serverprofi24.de, smpt.euve264659.serverprofi24.de ; imap.euve264659.serverprofi24.de ; www. euve264659.serverprofi24.de (thy all run on the same vserver)

I ran this command: certbot --apache

It produced this output: An unexpected error occurred:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error finalizing order :: too many certificates already issued for: serverprofi24.de: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/

My web server is (include version): apache2

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 16.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: server4you

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):no

Hi @vasskon,

There are several different issues here, so let me try to explain all of them:

  • too many requests: this problem is just as it says, but whenever you see that it will go away in just one hour.
  • too many certificates already issued for serverprofi24.de: is this your own domain or the domain of a hosting provider? Let’s Encrypt has limits on how many certificates it will issue per week for subdomains of an individual domain.
  • issuing all of your subdomains in one Certbot command: yes, you can issue a certificate for multiple domains and subdomains with Certbot by listing them all with -d options in your command line. For example certbot --apache -d agital.de -d www.agital.de -d mail.euve264659.serverpfi24.de -d smtp.euve264659.serverprofit24.de and so on. In this case all of these names will be listed in the single resulting certificate and it will be valid for any of them.
