If you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side application whatever the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you're able to both access and change any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to make other users, including users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by a script-driven app that you wish to run.
