This error comes up a bit when I search startpage for others who already experienced this:
Attempting to renew cert (xxxxxx.com-0001) from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/xxxxxx.com-0001.conf produced > an unexpected error: urn:acme:error:rateLimited :: There were too many requests of a given type :: Error
creating new cert :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: xxxxxx. Skipping.
When I head to the site and view the certificate in my browser, it was renewed TODAY. Except, the CN name is for the default site of the server (first alphabetically).
I used certbot to generate all of these SSL certs and I use it on multiple servers (both Ubuntu and CentOS), yet this appears to be the only server with this strange behavior.
When i view /etc/letsencrypt/live/ - for the directory with the affected domain, I now have two directories; one the old cert, another with the new cert; which is named xxxx.com-0001 – I am not sure when this appeared; perhaps last renewal? But judging by the renewal log above it was around before today.
A different domain (but same server) renewed at the same time today and its CN is accurate.
Is anyone familiar with what could be causing this?
