If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and change any kind of file, including system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things as well as 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 make one more user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to modify the server or to set up software which may be needed by a script-driven application that you would like to run.
