Required server permissions
UNIX systems require root privileges to install and configure software like a web server, PHP, and so on. If you need to install this software, make sure you have root access.
You should not install the Magento software in the web server docroot as the root user because the web server might not be able to interact with those files.
You’ll also need root privileges to create the Magento file system owner and add that owner to the web server’s group. You’ll use the Magento file system owner to run any commands from the command line and to set up the Magento cron job, which schedules tasks for you.
