You can also install software that can change particular settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you need. You can also generate various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.
