My domain is: gumblert.tech
I ran this command:
/usr/bin/env docker run --rm --name=matrix-certbot --user=991:991 --cap-drop=ALL -p 80:8080 --mount type=bind,src=/matrix/ssl/config,dst=/etc/letsencrypt --moun t type=bind,src=/matrix/ssl/log,dst=/var/log/letsencrypt docker.io/certbot/certbot:amd64-v1.17.0 certonly --non-interactive --work-dir=/tmp --http-01-port 8080 --stan dalone --preferred-challenges http --agree-tos --email=<my email> -d matrix.gumblert.tech
It produced this output:
An unexpected error occurred: There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many certificates (5) already issued for this exact set of domains in the last 168 hours: matrix.gumblert.tech: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/ Ask for help or search for solutions at https://community.letsencrypt.org. See the logfile /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log or re-run Certbot with -v for more details.

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no

I tried renewing my certificates for the root domain and a couple of subdomains during downtime, which failed. Then I waited until the status page was orange, and tried renewing again, and I got this error above. I'm sure this is wrong, because I didn't get a success even once, and the certificates were not created where I would expect them.
Is it possible to reset this rate limit so I can renew my certificates without waiting a whole week?
