I am using 'iterm' as my terminal at macosx. But I don't see all my command I type when I do 'history' and I don't see my previous command (copy and paste) using the UP arrow key?
Is there a way to fix it?

Check you home dir in iTerm.
$ cd ~ $ ls -la | grep .bash_history
If the above command found the file you can do the following command
$ cat .bash_history
This will show your history. Not in the exact same format as 'history' but it will do I think. Or you can search within your history with the shortcut
CTRL + r. It will show something as
(reverse-i-search). Type your command you did earlier and it will return a result.
Note: Some terminals have a different shell. For instance zsh. If that's the case you need to search
