That is to say, you'll be able install any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and change 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 that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges.
