If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you are able to both access and modify any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make a separate user for your daily work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software that may be needed by some script-driven application that you wish to run.
