I have a web template created in site collection A and have been requested to copy that web template to site collection B. To do this, I downloaded the web template solution by going to the solutions gallery on the top level site on Site Collection A and saving the .wsp file to my local machine. I then uploaded the .wsp file to the solution gallery on Site Collection B.
I've attempted to activate the features listed using the JSOM on both the web feature collection and the site feature collection but I get errors that the features are not installed in the farm. The weird thing is why does the "applying web template" error show that the features are "not activated" when the features aren't even installed? What can be done about this? Do I need to have the server admin (also fairly new to sharepoint) activate/install these features through other means?
