Good afternoon,

We use SharePoint to store our important docs. One of my users contacted me complaining that his searches were not working.

I thought that I may have an issue with crawling so I went to Central Administration > Application Management section > Manage Service Applications.

I clicked the Search service application and I got this:

Sorry, something went wrong The base type 'Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Internal.UI.SearchAdministration' is not allowed for this page. The type Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Internal.UI.SearchAdministration, Microsoft.Office.Server.Search, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c could not be found or it is not registered as safe. Technical Details

How do I fix this issue?
