Error when creating search center site in SharePoint 2013

Hi folks,

I was trying to create an enterprise search center site in my SharePoint 2013 VM. When i was clicked on Create button i was getting the well known yellow error page in SharePoint.




I straight up checked the logs and i found the following error message:

Exception in EnsureFeatureActivatedAtWeb: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: The SharePoint Publishing Infrastructure feature must be activated at the site collection level before the publishing feature can be activated.

So,  I went to the site settings  --> site collection features --> then i activated the SharePoint Publishing infrastructure feature.

Then, I went back to create a subsite --> selected enterprise search center. I entered all required information and when i clicked on create. the site is created with no errors!
