WCF Web.Config Question

Given issues I am having with my classic Web Service, I decided to port everything over to IIS today and I thought I had everything setup properly but I cannot find a reference to the new service.  According to what I have read, all I need to add to my current web.config file is the following:

</system.webServer>
<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true" />
  </system.webServer>
  <system.serviceModel>
    <behaviors>
      <serviceBehaviors>
        <behavior>
          <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />
          <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />
        </behavior>
      </serviceBehaviors>
    </behaviors>
    <serviceHostingEnvironment multipleSiteBindingsEnabled="true" />
  </system.serviceModel>

Which I did and then I compiled my website, pushed out the SVC and appcode files and nothing I do brings up a reference to this new service.  I have tried http://localhost/service.svc, http://localhost/service, http://localhost/service.svc?wsdl - and others - and nothing works.

What am I missing?

which version of IIS are you using?

IIS 7 on windows 2003 or 2008?

some of the services we were familiar with in IIS6/2003 are not visible or not even avaialble in IIS7

try outside of the browser

that svc should be visible on the local web server box in this location

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\service.svc

I cannot browse directly to it either - here is my original web.config that also does not work:

<system.serviceModel>
    <services>
      <service name="ServiceZ">
        <host>
          <baseAddresses>
            <add baseAddress="http://localhost/ServiceZ"/>
          </baseAddresses>
        </host>
      </service>
    </services>
    <bindings>
      <basicHttpBinding>
        <binding openTimeout="0:10:00" sendTimeout="00:10:00" />
      </basicHttpBinding>
    </bindings>
    <behaviors>
      <serviceBehaviors>
        <behavior>
          <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />
          <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />
        </behavior>
      </serviceBehaviors>
    </behaviors>
  </system.serviceModel>

Sorry - I forgot the endpoints - here is what I have now but it does not work either - I must be missing some kind of configuration setting...

<system.serviceModel>
    <services>
        <service name="ServiceZ">
            <endpoint address="http://localhost/Website/ServiceZ" binding="basicHttpBinding"        
                name="MainHttpPoint" contract="IServiceZ" />
            <endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpBinding" name="MexEP"
                contract="IMetadataExchange" />
        <host>
            <baseAddresses>
                <add baseAddress="http://localhost/Website/ServiceZ" />
            </baseAddresses>
        </host>
    </service>
</services>
<bindings>
    <basicHttpBinding>
        <binding openTimeout="0:10:00" sendTimeout="00:10:00" />
    </basicHttpBinding>
</bindings>
<behaviors>
    <serviceBehaviors>
        <behavior>
            <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />
                <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />
        </behavior>
    </serviceBehaviors>
</behaviors>
</system.serviceModel>

Never mind - a reboot of IIS suddenly cleared that part up.  Now I am having an issue where the WSDL is downloaded but breaks due to local references:

The document was understood, but it could not be processed.
  - The WSDL document contains links that could not be resolved.
  - There was an error downloading 'http://MyServer/ServiceZ.svc?wsdl=wsdl0'.
  - The remote name could not be resolved: 'MyServer'

This occurs in Production but I have a full URL listed - i.e. www.prodserver.com - so why the local references?
