Grafana Service Fails When Using Port 443 Https

I’ve set up Grafana using IIS and port forwarding to port 3000 which is the default https port used by Grafana.

Setup as:

Protocol (http, https, h2, socket)

protocol = https

The ip address to bind to, empty will bind to all interfaces

;http_addr =

The http port to use

http_port = 443

The public facing domain name used to access grafana from a browser

domain = domain.com.au

root_url = https://grafana.domain.com.au:3000

I wanted to update this to 443 so users don’t need to type in the port in the URL, however, when defining port 443 in the custom.ini file used, I recieve the below errors in the log:

Any advice is much appreciated!
