Too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains

Hi,

I can’t renew my certificate due to “too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains”. I don’t understand. There are only two domains, namely:

  1. machinefabriekmultiskills.nl
  2. www.machinefabriekmultiskills.nl
    Every renewal went fine till a few days ago. Hope somebody understand what’s happening.

Hi Kenneth,

Thanks, can you send your full log file to support at certifytheweb.com for investigation.

According to https://crt.sh/?q=machinefabriekmultiskills.nl you have a large number of completed requests for the same cert recently in particular on the 18th and 14th (it’s normal for crt.sh to show 2 entries)

The other possibility is that Certify isn’t managing to save it’s configuration - I assume your server has plenty of disk space available etc.

I’m assuming that you didn’t hit Request Certificate 5 times for the same cert. See the Let’s Encrypt Rate limits for info" https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/
