I'm obviously new to Traefik and don't understand how the certificate renewal process works because I now have 10 domains unreachable to the outside world
Error creating new order :: too many certificates already issued for exact set of domains:
I've got Traefik and a couple of containers setup, all working properly for a couple of days. Today though I tested some infrastructure as code with Terraform and Ansible so wiped the VPS a couple of times and the restarted the docker-compose setups a couple of times. I've kept the
acme.json all this time but apparently this is useless for the actual workings of Let's Encrypt? Because now I'm hitting the rate limit while the
acme.json is still in tact.
Why is it constantly requesting new certs and/or how can I reuse the old ones?
Any help greatly appreciated!
PS. I've read the ratelimit docs in the mean time and know now I had to use the staging servers instead, but I would like to know what the best way forward is with my 10 domains not being down. How can I reuse old certs? How is the acme.json file useful? Etc.
