Generating an SSL Certificate - Verified but RSA or ECDSA never generated

I have generated a wildcard SSL certificate using fly cers create "*.ourdomainname.co.uk" -a <our-app-name>

and verifying ownership successfully by setting the _acme_challenge CNAME, but the RSA and ECDSA seems to have not been generated successfully after over 12 hours.

I have been through this flow a few times with fly and the same domain in the last few days and it always worked fine after around an hour.

I recently deleted the certificate and then recreated it in an attempt to fix the issue, but it was instantly created in the same state as it was before.

So this hit a rate limit on Lets Encrypt I haven’t seen before:

Error creating new order :: too many certificates (5) already issued for this exact set of domains in the last 168 hours: *.ourdomain.co.uk: see https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/

I’m not sure we can do anything about that other than just wait it out.

Would it be possible to make certificates app-independent and be able to attach and detach them to apps? In particular for wildcard certificates such as here, this would make a lot of sense :slightly_smiling_face:
