Too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains:

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:
edscloud.org

I ran this command:
N/A Deployed a container

It produced this output:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains

My web server is (include version): Docker container

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Centos 7

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: DigitalOcean

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

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):
certbot --version
certbot 1.0.0

So, I screwed up. I was deploying docker containers for LetsEncrypt, MariaDB and NextCloud (for the first time as a noob). In my troubleshooting (because I kept getting database errors unrelated to LetsEncrypt) I snapshot the VPS and kept restoring the snapshot without saving off the certificate. Now, in my final deployment I am seeing the error in the LetsEncrypt docker logs.
Doing some Google searches I found other post on the same issue and found this site to view my certificate list: https://crt.sh/?q=edscloud.org
My question(s): Looking at the site, how do I interpret that list? Is there a way to tell when is the next time I can generate another certificate outside the limit so that I can deploy my NextCloud site? I believe I have found my database issue and this should be the last time I deploy the containers and generate a certificate.

Never mind. It looks as if the following site is working and tells my the next time is on the 14th, right?:

https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=edscloud.org

Hi @t3kg33k

yes, that’s correct.

But if you use a docker container, you should use a permanent device to save Certbot and all certificates. So you can re-use the account and the certificates if you destroy your container.

So you have to wait.

Or use the test system.
