When I enable "Sharepoint Publishing Feature" for a Site-Collection I get Access Denied. I tried using the Farm Administrator and the Site-Collection Administrator to access the site.

I tried activating it through Powershell and from the site.

I can supply you with logs if you want.

  • Have you got a custom branding solution? Is "NT Authority\All Authenticated Users" added to the "Style Rescource Readers" group? – Paul Strupeikis Feb 11 '16 at 12:53
  • Hey, my Central Administration gor a custom branding but not that webapplication/sitecollection. – Elinho Feb 11 '16 at 13:01
