If you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can install any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and update any file, including system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do all these things and to make 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 create a different user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software that may be required by some script-driven application that you wish to run.
