SharePoint 2013: Dependency feature 'Ratings' for feature 'PublishingSite' is not activated at this scope.


You try to active the site collection feature SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure, but then experience the following error:

Dependency feature 'Ratings' (id: 915c240e-a6cc-49b8-8b2c-0bff8b553ed3) for feature 'PublishingSite' (id: f6924d36-2fa8-4f0b-b16d-06b7250180fa) is not activated at this scope.

  • Repeat the attempt: after repeating it twice, the feature was displayed as activated in the Site Settings > Site Collection Features page.
  • I discovered this solution accidentally by simply repeating the activation several times.  Unclear to me why it didn't succeed the first time.  The reference is provide in case the above solution fails to work: you can active the dependent feature manually using PowerShell.  The reference shows you how.
