In other words, you can install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you're able to both access and customize any kind of file, including system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and to generate other users, including 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 everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by some script-driven application that you want to run.
