- Plesk for Linux
Unable to install a Let's Encrypt certificate for the domain:
PLESK_ERROR: There were too many requests of a given type :: Error creating new cert :: Too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: example.com,www.example.com
PLESK_ERROR: Error: Could not issue a Let's Encrypt SSL/TLS certificate for example.com.
The "Certificates per Registered Domain" rate limit has been exceeded for example.com. Let's Encrypt allows no more than 20 certificates to be issued per registered domain, per week.
Invalid response from https://acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org/acme/new-cert.
Detail: Error creating new cert :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains: example.com,www.example.com
Too many certificates were created for the domain for less than a week.
There is a rate limit of 20 certificates per domain per 7 days in place that is set by Let's Encrypt.
Wait for 7 days and try again. As these limitations are configured in Let's Encrypt side, there is no way to skip 7 days. Plesk as a product is not involved in this process - there is nothing can be done by Plesk. Let's Encrypt offers free certificates on their conditions. If the issue persists after 7 days, update the extension to the latest version.
Note: If the initial error was different, it is required to resolve it prior to re-trying generating a new certificate in 7 days. There is no difference how the request was sent from a command-line interface or from Plesk. Subdomains like sub1.example.com and sub2.example.com are counted as 1 domain *.example.com and each attempt to receive a certificate will be counted from 5 available attempts.
