  • All VPS instances are essentially a miniature linux computer in itself. Once you create a VPS - you can either choose to get the root password to be emailed to you and login as root - or add an SSH key and login via the SSH key.

    Either way, you would get root access.

Hi,

A Droplet is an unmanaged KVM VPS with full root access, so you can install whatever software you like on it, as long as it runs on Linux.

We also have a tutorial on install OpenERP that might be of help: How To Install and Set Up OpenERP 7.0 on a Debian 7/Ubuntu 13.10 VPS | DigitalOcean.

I recommend going with Debian 7 as Ubuntu 13.10 is no longer supported and following this tutorial first: Initial Server Setup with Debian 7 | DigitalOcean.

This tutorial covers how to login with root, how to change the root password, how to create a new user, and how to give the new user root privileges. It's written for Debian 7.
