Try asking Lets Encrypt to increase the limit or wait 7 days


#1

I’m trying to get my first sslforfree certificate to protect an IIS site.
I did several requests because of the issues I faced to get the http file with no extension.

Do I correctly understand the “Let’s encrypt” community can enable me to ask immediately for a certificate for the domain:

arcosrl.it

without waiting 7 days?

Hope to hear from you. Thank you

Enrico

Have you actually issued 5 or 6 different certificates and lost the private keys for all of them?

If you tried to issue a certificate, but never succeeded, that’s a very different matter.

We recently (April 2017) introduced a Failed Validation limit of 5 failures per account, per hostname, per hour. This limit will be higher on staging so you can use staging to debug connectivity problems.

https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/

If you’re running into that rate limit, you have less than an hour to wait.

I did not issued any certificate. Just tried.
Now I will be able to verify the request succesfully, because I opt fo a TXT DNS verification. So no more failed validation.

Please confirm if I can try, Thank you.

Validation TXT record:
TXT Record Found. Make sure the value matches the value specified previously with the domain:

Host: _acme-challenge.owa.arcosrl.it
Class: IN
Ttl: 14399
Type: TXT
Txt: vh3upOouNg2QUjnJXtIUGWmLcO__YzqtJo80onE9hUc
Entries: [“vh3upOouNg2QUjnJXtIUGWmLcO__YzqtJo80onE9hUc”]

I don’t personally know; i’m not one of the Let’s Encrypt staff. :sweat:

It’s been over half an hour since your first post. Wait until 1 hour after the first failed validation. Which is probably soon. :smile:
