Root access, vital or not?
Is not having root access going to restrict us too much?

 11:37 am on Apr 21, 2004 (gmt 0)

I am considering getting a dedicated sever with the most commonly recommended hosting company around here. I noticed that they do not allow root access for security reasons. I'm worried that this is going to make it a pain to install certain programs that we need, or recompile php to include another extension, etc... I was wondering what the experience has been for other people using a dedicated without root access? Is it actually easy to work around or is it quite onerous?

I install components too, and wouldn't be able to do it without root access.

It's a must have.
