When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you can both access and change any file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do all these things as well as to create other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software which may be needed by a script-driven app that you wish to run.
