When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app whatever the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you are able to both access and modify any 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 the aforementioned things as well as to create other users, including 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 is recommended that you create another user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven app that you would like to run.
