  1. How can I edit the wp config file in the Bluehost cPanel so that I
    can have a functional Plugins button on my website's dashboard hosted
    by Bluehost? My Plugins button is not working properly. When I hover
    over it , it doesn't allow me to see buttons such as Add New. I tried
    a number of troubleshooting methods, but the Plugins button still
    don't work since January this year. I cannot install new Themes and
    Plugins on my website because of that problem. A technician suggested
    that I edict the wp cofig file and change the last words of the last
    two files on the bottom of the page from "true" to"
    false." I went there on the cPanel but the files given in the
    Bluehost cPanel (define ('DISALLOW_FILE-EDIT', true); and define
    ('DISSALLOW_FILE_MODS', true); are different from the ones the
    technicians showed in her YouTube Video. Please advise.

  2. I think everyone started disliking @ 0:30.

    #1 I found the file in "httpdocs", which is one folder above, not under "wp-includes" did they change it?

    #2 Sultry voice is sultry. Some ASMR in that direction wouldn't be wrong.

    Back to the topic:
    @everyone with this problem:
    Get yourself a browser plugin inside your WordPress Blog. You need to be able to browse and edit files on your blog while being on your blog basically. I use WP File Manager and it works perfectly for this.

  3. For those who came here looking for answers and was still lost on how to even get to the file, I was able to get to my wp-config.php file through my File Manager in cPanel. When I got there I didn't know exactly where to go so I did a search for the file, but if you cannot search for the file look in your public file (you'll see one that says public). Once you get to the file and double click to open it, mine gave me an option to open it in TextEdit. From there you can make changes and save. I am not an expert by any means, but I had no idea where she went and thought this would help. Take care!

  4. what the heck? you just show the files and then rave on about irrelevancies. show the people how to edit their wp-config file, its not that difficult.

  5. Hi can you recommend a good FTP program to do this for a Mac user. Do I need something like coda or is there a good free programme.

  6. I downloaded the wp-content folder to my PC as the video shows, but I cannot find the wp-config.php file.

  7. Do changes you make automatically get loaded? Or is there a process you have to stop and start? I added the line to increase memory for a plugin, but the plugin still says the memory is the same amount as before.

  8. Great video…Hi there. I am having an issue logging in my WordPress Admin. Just wanna know if wp-config.php entries such as "DB name", "DB username", etc. are Case Sensitive. Thanks in advance…
