When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control over it. In other words, 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 customize any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software that may be needed by some script-driven application that you would like to run.
