Went Over 5 Attempts


#1

I have a server that would not renew the keys due to not finding
my_domain/.well-known/acme-challenge/my_key
Using the actual domain and key. I since added a txt record at Vultr but by this time I had already tried and failed 5 times. Now I get:
Renewing an existing certificate
An unexpected error occurred:
There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new authz :: too many failed authorizations recently: see https://


Please see the logfiles in /var/log/letsencrypt for more details.
The Let’s Encrypt cert has not been renewed!

That rate limit will reset in an hour. Try again in an hour and you should be fine.

I will do that, thanks!

If you want to test in the mean-time (or for future use to avoid the rate limit error) our staging environment has more generous rate limits to enable this sort of testing/troubleshooting.
