Too many requests

I have been having problem renewing my certificate so I re-installed my Letsencrpt docker. Apparently, I have made too many requests from the same domain.

My domain is:

I ran this command: certbot certonly -d

It produced this output: There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: see

My web server is (include version):

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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): certbot 0.38.0

The message is telling you the problem--you've created five identical certs within the past week. Why not use one of them?

I was having and issue with doing a certbot certonly command. My thought is the certificate was being installed but my domain was still being blocked for a lack of a better term. So I uninstalled my Letsencrypt docker on UNRAID and installed it again. That is when I received that error

You’ll have to wait for the rate limit to elapse (~3 days from now - 10 Sep 2019 08:01:36 UTC). There’s no reset button.

The next time you issue certificates, make sure to use a persistent Docker volume with the Let’s Encrypt container, so that it doesn’t create a new certificate every time you run it.
