VESTA UBUNTU 14.04_ Error: Let's Encrypt new auth status 429

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: bsgcarscar.com.ng

I ran this command:tried to activate ssl certificate in vesta control panel

It produced this output: Error: Let’s Encrypt new auth status 429

My web server is (include version): GCP

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 14.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: GCP

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): VESTA LATEST VERSION

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

Hi @tremendouslymax

that domain doesn’t exist - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=bsgcarscar.com.ng

You need a worldwide unique, public visible domain name if you want to create a certificate.

Am sorry its bsgcars.com.ng

Why is there https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=bsgcars.com.ng#ct-logs a mix of Letsencrypt- and cPanel certificates, if you use VestaCP?

Your mail ports and your VestaCP port use one of the new certificates (see the part connections).

Only your port 443 doesn’t work.

Perhaps you have to create a vHost in your VestaCP.

Thank you so much for the help sir.
i guess i am having several duplicate copies of the ssl for bsgcars.com.ng because i was testing different operating systems for the vesta cp on the GCP. i created several VM instances which i deleted when something went wrong during the installation process.
is there a way to delete/purge all those ssl installations for bsgcars.com.ng?
kindly help…am having problems activating the lets encrypt cert on both bsgcars.com.ng and breedschool.com which are on the same vestacp installation

That’s the wrong way. Read the basics about Rate Limits

You have one correct certificate. You can use it. Or you delete it -> then you have to wait.
