Too many ssl requests

Hello,
I tried to create an SSL certificate for one of my domains and got this error message

~# sudo certbot --apache --agree-tos --redirect --register-unsafely-without-email --hsts -d <domainname>
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Plugins selected: Authenticator apache, Installer apache
Obtaining a new certificate
An unexpected error occurred:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new order :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: <domainname>: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/

As you can see from the error message, I simply created too many certificates, and this is also true. My question is actually how long it takes before I can create certificates again?

Thank you for your answers!

It’s a rolling window. So you’ll have to know which certificate is issued first (in the last 7 days) and add 7 days to that time.

Thank you
