Publishing a WCF service on IIS 8

WCF services don’t run on IIS 8 with the default configuration, because the webserver doesn’t know, how to handle incoming requests targeting .svc files. You can teach it in two steps:

1. Add a new MIME type:

Extension: .svc
MIME type: application/octet-stream



2. Add a new Managed HTTP Handler:

Request path: *.svc
Type: System.ServiceModel.Activation.HttpHandler
Name: svc-Integrated


That’s it!
