Are We Able to Get Root Access to Our Pagely VPS?

VPS customers are granted semi-root SSH access and are able to do almost everything possible with full-root access with the exception of running “apt-get install” and “apt-get update”. These are restricted because we need to be able to re-provision your entire environment from scratch using our Ansible playbook. By enabling these commands, it would be possible for you to make fundamental changes to the environment which wouldn’t be captured in our playbook.

If you need custom libraries installed, we can do that on your behalf via support ticket.
