When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you are able to both access and customize any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software which may be required by some script-driven application that you would like to run.
