I am creating Site Collection with Team Site Template. When I tried to create it shows me error that

The parent content type specified by content type identifier 0x0101 does not exist.

Note : After I tried to create Custom Content Type which inherits Document Content Type I got this error.

Please activate 'SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure' feature first, to activate the feature go to team site, site action -> site settings -> site collection feature (under Site Collection Administration group) and find 'SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure' activate it, please check and let me know if it worked

I said when I Create Team Site it is showing error. So how can I Activate Publishing Feature from Central Admin Site Creating Wizard? – Torque Nov 27 '12 at 6:56
Ok got it, but one thing is confusing me at what moment you are getting the error - at the time of site creation or at the time of content type creation? – Diptarag Nov 27 '12 at 7:14
Thanx Diptarag, I got the solution. I find that there was mistake in my code so that's why I was getting error. I changed the code and error was gone. – Torque Nov 27 '12 at 9:59
