    Hi nshah002,

     

    It depends on the hosting your on. If your on a Shared Hosting environment such as Linux with cPanel, or Manage WordPress you won't have full root access. You can access via SSH but won't have full admin rights as its a Shared Hosting environment.

     

    If your on a Dedicated Hosting like a Virtual Private Server (VPS) or a Dedicated Server you'll be granted full root access and can get that information from your Hosting Dashboard depending on your purchased configuration.

     

    Other than that if you could provide further information or contacting our 24/7 customer support and request Hosting. I'm sure we can figure this out together.
