Long back I wrote a blog post Step by Step hosting WCF Service in IIS 7.5 . In this post I used Visual Studio 2012 as I remember. Today I was trying to host WCF in local IIS in Visual Studio 2013 and found it is surprisingly easy to host WCF Service in IIS 2013 in Visual Studio 2013.
Let us assume you have created a WCF Service. Now to publish it in local IIS right click on project and from context menu select Properties.
In Properties select Web tab. In Web tab from Servers drop down select local IIS.
Next click on Package/Publish Web tab and from Items to deploy drop down select Only Files Needed to run this application.
Now when you press F5 and run application WCF Service will be hosted in local IIS.
As you see now hosting in IIS is super easy. I hope you find this post useful. Thanks for reading.
