What is root?

Root is the name of the most powerful account on a Debian installation. This user account can do everything on the machine. It's also known as supervisor, administrator.

It has uid 0 and gid 0.

Password

At installation time, you are been asked for creation or not of the root account.

  • if you want so (the default), you'll be asked to provide a password for root. Use a strong one!

  • if not, no root account is enabled and the password of the first user created will be used for administration tasks.
