If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side application no matter what the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you will be able to both access and customize any file, including system files, and change various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things and also to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by a script-driven app that you wish to run.
