Wildcard on one server prevent renew on another?

My domain is: qwerty-soluciones.com


quick question:

if i have a wildcard cert on my hosted webserver, will that prevent me from renewing a specific cert i had for my home nas?

Hi @zanda

no, that' not relevant / possible.

Certificates are independend.

Only thing: The global rate limit:

Max. 50 certificates per domain per week. But that shouldn't be a problem.

well i tried to renew 5 times on my NAS got errors everytime. then i hit some sort of daily limit as the error message changed.

i will ask the synology community where to find error logs to see what’s going on…

Then share your first error message to see, why the certificate creation didn't work.

What's the domain name of the nas?

it seems to be firewall related… i closed off 80 a few weeks ago and hoped having 443 open would be enough !?

when will the 5 try limit expire so i can try again? 24h?

That's wrong, an open port 80 is required.

The rate limit document has the answer.

if i open port 80 on my router, but redirect it to 443 on my nas, would that work?

rate limit for renewals is a week. good that i still have time left before expiry, or i’d be screwed -_-

I don't know. The ACME client must support that.

That's correct, but that's not your rate limit.

Checking your domain there is a configuration error - https://check-your-website.server-daten.de/?q=cl4p-tp.qwerty-soluciones.com

Your http doesn't work, so Letsencrypt can't validate your domain.

Looks like your port forwarding is wrong - port 80 extern -> port 443 intern.

Port 80 extern -> port 80 intern is required.

no. it’s just that those ports are closed right now. i only open them when i (manually) renew my NAS cert. i just thought that 80 wasnt necesary, which i guess was wrong.

i tried 5 times today (with 443 only open) and got 5 errors and then a rate limit error. so i guess i have to wait a week before trying again. and meanwhile, those ports will remain closed.

No, you don't. Read the rate limits documentation a little more carefully.
