Too many Certificates

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: perthdronephotos.com

I ran this command: letsencrypt-auto --apache -d perthdronephotos.com -d www.perthdronephotos.com

It produced this output: sent a message saying I’ve used too many certificates

My web server is (include version): Ubuntu 18.04, PHP 7.2

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 18.04

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):

I only have the one domain and have been having an upgrade on the website so went over on certificates as had some issues setting it back up, can I get all my certificates deleted so I can re-install a new one now as site is all good now

Hi @andmax

you have created 5 identical certificates ( https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=perthdronephotos.com ).

Where are these? Why isn’t it possible to use one of these?

next Letsencrypt certificate: 2019-05-17 11:08:11

That doesn’t help. Please read

Revoking certificates does not reset rate limits, because the resources used to issue those certificates have already been consumed.

You have a working certificate:

CN=perthdronephotos.com
	23.03.2019
	21.06.2019
expires in 38 days	
perthdronephotos.com, www.perthdronephotos.com - 2 entries

You can use that 8 - 28 days.

PS: Your chain is incomplete:

Chain - incomplete	
	1	CN=perthdronephotos.com

The intermediate certificate is missing.
