Quick tip when Search is not working

I had a search page that worked locally but not on my test server. The strange thing was that the when I access this path locally I got the result

http://host/IndexingService/IndexingService.svc/search/?q=(EPISERVER_SEARCH_DEFAULT%3a(test))+AND+((EPISERVER_SEARCH_TYPE%3a(EPiServer.Core.PageData%2cEPiServer))+OR+(EPISERVER_SEARCH_TYPE%3a(EPiServer.Core.PageData%2cEPiServer)))&namedindexes=&offset=0&limit=30&format=xml&accesskey=local

but on the test server I got the 404 page. So after some checking I found out that the default handlers for webserver was different, and the solution was to change the web.config to something like this:

<location path="IndexingService/IndexingService.svc">
  <system.web>
    <httpRuntime maxQueryStringLength="65536" />
  </system.web>
  <system.webServer>
    <handlers>
      <clear/>
      <add name="svc-Integrated-4.0" path="*.svc" verb="*" type="System.ServiceModel.Activation.ServiceHttpHandlerFactory, System.ServiceModel.Activation, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" preCondition="integratedMode,runtimeVersionv4.0" />
    </handlers>
    <security>
      <requestFiltering>
        <requestLimits maxQueryString="65536" />
      </requestFiltering>
    </security>
  </system.webServer>
</location>
