I apparently had my crontab set wrong and it issued/renewed too many times and was wondering if there was a way to reset it or do I actually have to wait? If I have to wait, how long would that be? Because I really need a certificate for my site. Thanks!
There isn’t a way to reset the limit, no.
What exactly is the message (including domain names) ? from that I can tell you how long you need to wait.
Why do you need a new certificate ? can’t you use an existing one ( since you have been getting them too frequently )
Well, I had to re-install my O/S on the VPS and lost the certificate otherwise I would have done that.
This is the message:
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: torrentcrate.org
It looks as if you created 5 certs on the 17th Feb and one on 18th Feb, so you will need to wait until next Friday ( 7 days after the first of those) to obtain another identical certificate.
I’d suggest that you set up a subdomain (such as www.torrentcrate.org ) and then obtain a single certificate for both torrentcrate.org and www.torrentcrate.org which you can do now ( since the rate limit was for the identical set of domains - and you didn’t have the www subdomain in your cert.)
You need to wait 7 days for an identical ticket ( i.e. for torrentcrate.org only).
How you create one for both depends on your operating system, what client you are using etc. How did you obtain the certificate for torrentcrate.org ? did you use certbot ? if so then use -d torrentcrate.org -d www.torrentcrate.org to add both domains.
I’m using certbot on debian jessie with apache2
