Some of my previous posts involved in web services made by ASP.NET Web API and I have received some feedback that it’s difficult to make the code run. The readers don’t know how to publish the sample web service which is included in source file. Therefore in this post I will show you how to publish a ASP.NET Web API service to localhost (your local computer). The tutorial is written for my current environment with Windows 8.1 and IIS 8.5. If you have another system and don’t find out how to follow a certain step in tutorial, make a comment below. Maybe I can help.
