Having full root-level access means that you can access and update each file on a particular server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps in order to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned tasks. The root user may also create various other users.
