I’m trying to renew a certificate for my site, https://www.japanizer.org. Validity period for the current certificate is:
Issued On Tuesday, July 5, 2016 at 1:37:00 PM
Expires On Monday, October 3, 2016 at 1:37:00 PM
Unfortunately it fails with:
# letsencrypt renew --agree-tos (...some other domains valid for long...) Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/japanizer.org.conf 2016-09-22 05:00:17,202:WARNING:letsencrypt.cli:Attempting to renew cert from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/japanizer.org.conf produced an unexpected 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: japanizer.org,www.japanizer.org. Skipping. All renewal attempts failed. The following certs could not be renewed: /etc/letsencrypt/live/japanizer.org-0001/fullchain.pem (failure) 1 renew failure(s), 0 parse failure(s)
Perhaps my “renewal” process is wrong?
I’m running this command daily via cron to trigger the renewal:
letsencrypt renew --agree-tos
