Learn what exactly ‘full root-level access’ implies, what privileges you'll have and the way to make use of them to adjust your server.
Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize any kind of file on a specific server, which includes all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the aforementioned tasks. The root user can also create various other users.
