If you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you can install any server-side application irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you are able to both access and update any kind of file, which includes system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things and also to make other users, which includes users who 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 one more user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven app that you want to run.
