Too many Certicates?!


#1

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

My domain is:pg-mg.de

I ran this command:letsencrypt --apache certonly

It produced this output:An unexpected error occurred:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new cert :: Too m any certificates already issued for exact set of domains: pg-mg.de

My operating system is (include version): Ubuntu 16.04.01

My web server is (include version): apache2

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:I / Deinserverhost

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

You’ve got a lot of certificates issued lately: https://crt.sh/?q=%pg-mg.de

See more about the rate limits: https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/

Yes, we had a technical problem. When can I request a new one again? Or how can I delete the “old”?

It’s a sliding window of 7 days (i.e., 604800 seconds). Counting from your cert of Jan 30, you can request a (single!) new one from Mon, 6 Feb 2017 12:38:00 +00:00.

Deleting/revoking/whatever doesn’t reset the rate limit, so don’t bother :slight_smile:
