Certificate expiration error


i was rechecking a site which was configured using boringproxy few months ago.
it was down due to some reason. . i guess the certificate expired.
now when i try t ostart the server, getting this below error. How to get past this?

root@srv426587:/dba-ilf-dev/boring# ./boringproxy-linux-x86_64 server
2024/06/15 09:38:23 Starting up
2024/06/15 09:38:24 admin.pointar.digital: renewing certificate: [admin.pointar.digital] Renew: [admin.pointar.digital] creating new order: attempt 1: https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/acme/new-order: HTTP 429 urn:ietf:params:acme:error:rateLimited - Error creating new order :: too many failed authorizations recently: see Failed Validation Limit - Let's Encrypt (ca=https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory)


First, double check that the domain name is pointed at the IP address of the machine. Are you sure the machine didn’t get a new IP?

Then, can you try using the Let’s Encrypt staging servers? Run the server with -acme-use-staging

ok…tried with -acme-use-staging and getting a new error

no solvers available for remaining challenges (configured=[http-01 tls-alpn-01] offered=[http-01 dns-01 tls-alpn-01] remaining=[dns-01])

I think this is because your DNS records aren’t pointing at the IP address where the server is running. Please verify that.
