You can also install software which can update certain settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you need. You can also generate other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etcetera. 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 can be done through 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.
