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., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

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

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):

what is the renew limit im not able to understand when i can run my autorenew script to test


Did you misspell the name?

In any case, you can check online to see how many certs have been issued to any domain via online tools.

That said, rate limits can be found at:

The rate limit document link should have been in the error message you received.

Also, for testing you should have been using the staging environment!

still not able to understand when i can renew for example for this domain

See Rate Limits for the rate limits, as @rg305 already posted.

i look at the rate limits and checked i have 14 certificates if i understand correctly i didnt reach the max equest

Renewals are treated specially: they don’t count against your Certificates per Registered Domain limit, but they are subject to a Duplicate Certificate limit of 5 per week.

so next sunday ill be able to try to renew if id understand?

Why would you need to renew a cert that is still good for 90 days?

to see my script is working

If you are “testing”. please use the staging environment instead.

its testing and production its a live web server
its a script i find and not able to see where to change it

also on website im not able to renew

Oh my… Look at the sheer number of certificates issued: (note: half of them are pre-certificates for the generation of the SCTs but still!)

Please please please, use the staging environment for testing! The explanation “it’s a script” just doesn’t cut it. You should find a way to use the staging environment. Or ask a colleague or something. This just isn’t right, you’re abusing the Let’s Encrypt resources.
