root access 9.10 remix

I have install PHP on 9.10 remix but can set permission on folder as I have no root access.
How can I log into my netbook as root?

What exactly you want to do? If you can change the owner of the folder using the following command in a terminal:

sudo chown -R yourusername /path-to-your-folder

open terminal
sudo su
enter password
I do not have the remix running (no device) but that is how you do it in desktop build

I need to be able to change the permission on the www folder (currently ownership root) to allow me to add and edit files within the folder from my normal login.
