Too many certificates already issued for exact set of domain


#1

Let’s Encrypt is very helpful on our site security and I have been using let’s Encrypt for my domain acbel.solar. But after 90 days, it expired and i have to renew it again. While I was trying renewal of let’s encrypt, I mistakenly requested many certificates. But, I’d got some issues on my server and I have to set up all server setting again. After that, when I request certificate again, i am getting this issue. Since after my certificate has expired, i have not used any new certificate for my domai: acbel.solar.
Please, support team, can you check on my domain and accept my request again. I don’t know how to skip this and I have to add https to my site urgently. Thank you so much Let’s Encrypt.

With Regards,
Merry

My domain is: acbel.solar

I ran this command: sudo certbot --apache -d acbel.solar

It produced this output:
An Expected error occurred: There were too many requests of a given type ::
Error finalizing order :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: acbel.solar: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/

My web server is (include version): Apache Tomcat

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):

Hi @Merry

you have created 5 identical certificates (5 pre- and 5 leaf certificates are listed):

https://crt.sh/?q=acbel.solar

So you have to wait 7 days to create a new certificate.

Or add a second domain, one certificate with www.acbel.solar + acbel.solar and use that.

Or first use the test system to check your configuration.

Thank you so much for the reply @JuergenAuer
But is it possible to use one of that pending unused certificate as in https://crt.sh/?q=acbel.solar
Because I just requestrd them but have not actually used in my domain and unluckily I don’t have any chance to wait for 7 days.
Thanks again Sir.

Do you have the private keys? What says

certbot certificates

No Sir. I don’t have. I have to re-setup my server and I deleted all let’s encrypt files from my server.


#6

by the way, this limit is for “exact set” list of domains. adding a new subdomain or remove one will bypass this limit.


#7

Thanks for your idea Orange. I will try that out.
