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.

I only issued 14 certificates and the limit is 50 per week, I am unable to issue any other certificate, the issue was that I was testing magento and when error occur I remove the instance and reinstall all things this way I ordered certificates, now I am blocked and waited already more then 36 hour’s but no luck.

Certificates I issued:

My domain

I ran this command:sudo /opt/bitnami/bncert-tool

It produced this output: An error occurred creating certificates with Let’s Encrypt:
acme: error: 429 :: POST ::
:: urn:ietf:params:acme:error:rateLimited :: Error creating new order :: too
many certificates already issued for exact set of domains:, see, url:

Hi @heart2hack

please read that document

complete, not only one part.

And: You have created certificates, so you have all you need. So the limit is required.

Please use one of these certificates 60 - 85 days, then create the next.

As I had deleted all the instances inside amazon (servers) now I don’t have any key’s of the certificate to use, when will the limit end?
I issued 14 certificates but I deleted all the instances on wihch I ordered the certificates, so what’s the next step to use the certificate for the new server.
this is client project and he is waiting for me, to complete the site, but i am waiting for SSL to be installed on this server and it show me limit exceed.

Why are you doing such wrong things? That’s a waste of resources.

Second time: You have to read the link, there is your answer.

Before using a new service, it’s required to read the basics.

Use one of your backups you’ve naturally made before you deleted the instances.

But I’m guessing you don’t have any.

You might want to explain your client you didn’t read the Let’s Encrypt documentation, as @JuergenAuer already pointed out. There, you would have read about the staging environment you should have used for testing purposes and about the all the different kind of rate limits (there are more than the 50 certs per domain per week limit). And read the error carefully and see why it’s not the 50 limit you’re hitting.
