I’m getting errors of “Too many registrations from this IP”. I’ve yet to issue my first cert; this was my second try, and the first failed with an ASN1 error when reading my CSR.
I’m using the following command as indicated by the beta email:
$ ./letsencrypt-auto --agree-dev-preview --server https://acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org/directory auth --csr /etc/ssl/www.example.org-letsencrypt.csr [...] Error: rateLimited :: There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new registration :: Too many registrations from this IP
The domain is [www.]example.org and the server is running FreeBSD 10.2 at 126.96.36.199.
The beta email mentions “you should avoid deleting the /etc/letsencrypt/accounts folder”, but I never touched any letsencrypt file, and only installed it once on a single server with dedicated static IP. What exactly is a “registration” and why did I hit the cap? Is there anything I can do that doesn’t involve waiting a week for my rate limit to expire?
