Unable to create a certificate : says that too much certificates have been generated

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: sdp77.com

I ran this command: N/A (synology interface)

It produced this output: too much request for certificate for this domain have been generated …

My web server is (include version): Nginx.

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): N/A

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: synology

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): yes

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot):

Hi @fresco

checking your domain there is no real problem visible - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=sdp77.com#ct-logs

You have created one new certificate:

Issuer not before not after Domain names LE-Duplicate next LE
Let’s Encrypt Authority X3 2019-12-04 2020-03-03 sdp77.com, www.sdp77.com - 2 entries duplicate nr. 1
Let’s Encrypt Authority X3 2019-11-09 2020-02-07 sdp77.com, www.sdp77.com - 2 entries
Let’s Encrypt Authority X3 2019-09-07 2019-12-06 sdp77.com, www.sdp77.com - 2 entries

And your port 443 - there is this certificate used:

CN=sdp77.com
	04.12.2019
	03.03.2020
expires in 90 days	sdp77.com, www.sdp77.com - 2 entries

So all looks good.

Do you want to use the certificate with another port?

PS: Or do you use a subdomain?

Thanks a lot for your reply.
And yes , you’re right : currently, I intend to use a subdomain, and this is the reason why I tried to create a new certificate (or modificate the current one).

Do you have some hints for me ?

BR,

Then check your subdomain with the online tool to see, if there are certificates created.

That’s not required. You can create different certificates with different domain- or subdomain names.

Note, though, that the exact error messages matter quite a lot. There are several different rate limits covering different things, with different limits, for different amounts of time. In the topic subject, you say the issue is that too many certificates have been generated. However, in your first post, you say too many requests for a certificate have been generated. These are two very different things. In the future, posting the exact text of the error your receive (or perhaps a screen shot) will help us help you.
