Activate Solution is Disabled (greyed out).



Following are the solutions that we can try one-by-one:
  1. Restart Internet Explorer in Administrator Mode
  2. Ensure SharePoint User Code Host is running in Windows Services
  3. Ensure Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Sandboxed Code Service is started in Central Administration > Manage Services
Once applying the solution(s) the Activate button turned to be Enabled now.

Error while creating web application in SharePoint 2013 : The password supplied with the username domainname\username was not correct.

Problem :

“The password supplied with the username .\Administrator was not correct. Verify that it was entered correctly and try again” Error while creating web application in SharePoint 2013


I got that error while creating a new web application in SharePoint 2013. Actually recently we had changed the password of the administrator account. However we had to follow this extra step to get the things working properly.
Run the sharepoint powershell console as Administrator and run this command.
stsadm -o updatefarmcredentials -userlogin <domain\username> –password <newpassword>

SharePoint 2013 Central Administration Ribbons Grayed Out


On SharePoint 2013 some ribbons from the Central Administration Area are grayed out. The user is a farm admin.
For example: New Web Application, New Service Application.


Start SharePoint 2013 Central Administration from the Start Menu icon
- or -
run Internet Explorer as Administrator.
