Question about Lets Encrypt

Hestia Control Panel: v1.5.0
Debian 10.11 (x86_64)

According to the log below:

{
“type”: “urn:ietf:params:acme:error:rateLimited”,
“detail”: “Error creating new order :: too many certificates (5) already issue d for this exact set of domains in the last 168 hours: melatoninavix.com,www.mel atoninavix.com: see Rate Limits - Let's Encrypt”,
“status”: 429
}

do I have to wait 168 hours for a new attempt?

Basicly, yes. Also try to find out, why its failing - you got some 400 error codes before you land in a 429.

There were some attempts due to an error, which I couldn’t identify:

I formatted the vps and reinstalled hestiacp

I had this problem in the past. In the end I didnt have to wait that long.

What was done?

If I keep trying to generate the certificate, the time can increase.

E_CONNECT=15

I think the DNS records do not point to the correct server. What happens when you run the command in command line?

[email protected]:/home/debian# v-add-letsencrypt-domain mvix melatoninavix.com www.melatoninavix.com
Error: Let’s Encrypt new auth status 429 (melatoninavix.com)

DNS is pointing to hestiacp IP correctly
