Cannot find the X.509 certificate when browsing wcf services in browser

I Published a service on IIS 7. I used a self signed certificate named testCertificate. when I browse the service in the browser I get this error: Cannot find the X.509 certificate using the following search criteria: StoreName 'Root', StoreLocation 'LocalMachine', FindType 'FindBySubjectName', FindValue 'testCertificate'. I used this code in my Web.Config file:

        <serviceCertificate findValue="testCertificate" storeLocation="LocalMachine" storeName="Root" x509FindType="FindBySubjectName" />
        <userNameAuthentication userNamePasswordValidationMode="Custom" customUserNamePasswordValidatorType="MyService.Authentication,MyService" />

And another point is when I referesh the browser page I get this error: HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. could any one help me please?


You need to add the X509 certificate in the store location

Store --> Root --> LocalMachine

Type mmc in the Run to add certificate
