When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you can both access and change any file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and to create other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by some script-driven application that you want to run.
