Can I have root permissions on my Platform.sh projects ?
Most of each container is a read-only file system anyway, so even the root user would not be able to do much. The only writeable parts of the system are your file mounts, which you define in
.platform.app.yaml and have full access to, and selected configuration files that are auto-generated on deploy based on your
.platform.app.yaml file. That supports both repeatable deployments and tighter security.
