I'm trying to active this part from the site features:

**SharePoint Server Publishing

Create a Web page library as well as supporting libraries to create and publish pages based on page layouts.**

The sites that I have created from scratch I have been able to activate this feature but this site has been created by someone else and here I cannot activate it.The error /info i get is this:

The feature being activated is a Site scoped feature which has a dependency on a Site Collection scoped feature which has not been activated. Please activate the following feature before trying again: SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure f6924d36-2fa8-4f0b-b16d-06b7250180fa

I cannot find this feature that the error mentions. Can someone help?

  • Did you try to find it at Site collection settings, not Site settings? Jan 15, 2015 at 9:53
  • yes I did. This sites setting list does not have a Site collection feature at all. I don't actually have the Site Collection Administration area at all. I was just wondering could the problem be that when the site was created that they chose some options that leave this collection feature out all together

You should first activate the SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature at the site collection level, then on the site level.

See the detailed solution here.

  • I know but the problem is that the whole Site Collection Admistration area is missing. So therefore I have no chance of getting to the site collection feature

  • So why is that area missing is probably my actual question?

    That means probably that you have not permission for that (you are not a site collection admin).
