I get the error on a server that I did too many requests:
ACME server returned an 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: my-server.com
I accidentally had my certificates in a volatile storage, so I was requesting a new one each time the service was started. This is fixed now.
I now have a process which tries to request the certificates every hour. Will I eventually be able to request a new certificate (after 7 days) or am I just shooting myself in the foot with script because every hour the
request wait period will be reset to 0 when I request the certificates, meaning that I will never get a new certificate?
Thank you very much!
