How to enable cheats on a Minecraft Bedrock server

Enabling cheats on a Minecraft Bedrock server can offer several benefits to players, particularly those looking for a more customized or experimental gameplay experience. Cheats can provide players with various advantages, such as the ability to fly, change the time of day, spawn items or mobs, and more. These cheats can be handy for server administrators, as they can help them test different aspects of the server, such as plugins, mods, or new gameplay mechanics. Enabling cheats can also give players more creative freedom, allowing them to build and design structures more easily and quickly.
