When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you're able to both access and update any file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things as well as to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create a different user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software which may be needed by a script-driven application that you want to run.
