SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure is a site collection scoped feature.

To activate this feature, you need to go Site Settings > Site collection features and activate the feature from here first. After that, you will be able to activate the web scoped SharePoint Server Publishing feature by going to Site Settings > Manage Site features.

Secondly, activation of these features is currently possible but is not a supported configuration.

  • I am afraid you are not site collection admin. You might be an owner but that doesnt give you rights to activate site collection features. Check this image. Please ask the person who created this site, probably they might be able to activate it – Gautam Sheth Jul 6 '18 at 15:39
