  • Hi Diego,

    If you have already activated the Site Collection feature SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure prior to activating the Site Feature SharePoint Server Publishing then run: stsadm -o activatefeature -id AEBC918D-B20F-4a11-A1DB-9ED84D79C87E -url http://YourWebApp.com -force.. This will force the feature to be installed..

    The field PublishingStartDate is an element of the feature Asset Library 

                <Field ID="{51d39414-03dc-4bd0-b777-d3e20cb350f7}"
                    Required="FALSE" CanToggleHidden="TRUE"

    The Asset Library is an element of the the feature Publishing Resources and a prequisite of the feature Publishing Site

    <Feature  Id="AEBC918D-B20F-4a11-A1DB-9ED84D79C87E"
              Title="Publishing Resources"
              Description="Enable Publishing for site collection."
              ReceiverAssembly="Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c"

  • Hi,

    Use the saem command but change Activate to Deactivate

    stsadm -o deactivatefeature -id AEBC918D-B20F-4a11-A1DB-9ED84D79C87E -url http://YourWebApp.com -force

    After you that try this stsadm -o activatefeature -filename PublishingSite\feature.xml -url http://SiteCollectionUrl -force

  • I am having the same issue, and  I m confused as t why a post has been marked as an answer by Aaron when the author has clearly identified that none of the commands provided has helped him with his issue.
