not able to activate the feature in SharePoint 2010

Problem Description: not able to activate the feature in SharePoint 2010

I was facing the following error messages while activating the feature at the site level.

Where exactly:
-Site actions
-Site settings
-Manage site features

Error Message:
Site
The feature being activated is a Site scoped feature which has a dependency on a Site Collection scoped feature which has not been activated. Please activate the following feature before trying again: SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure f6924d36-2fa8-4f0b-b16d-06b7250180fa

Web
The Site scoped feature being activated has a dependency on hidden Site scoped feature 'FeatureDefinition/22a9ef51-737b-4ff2-9346-694633fe4416' (ID: '22a9ef51-737b-4ff2-9346-694633fe4416'). Hidden features cannot be auto-activated across scopes. There may be one or more visible Site scoped features that auto-activate the dependent hidden feature.

From the above error message, it is quite clear regarding the resolution we need to apply to get rid of this message.

Resolution:
Let me explain in details, step by step:
-Open the site on which you are facing this problem
-site actions
-site settings
-site collection administration
-site collection features
-activate the appropriate feature as per your requirements.

Note: if you are not able to see the ‘site collection administration then you don’t have appropriate rights to activate that feature.

What you need to do in such situations? - Please contact your site collection administrators and mention the complete details so that they can activate the feature for you / tell them to assign you site collection admin rights -(this is sometimes difficult if they follow the policy)

Product Applies to:
-SharePoint Server 2010
-SharePoint Foundation 2010

If you have any queries/questions regarding the above mentioned information then please let me know.

I would be more than happy to help you as well as resolves your issues, thank you.
