comment How do you restart Apache?
@xav0989 That's quite the matter of definition. Sure you can't directly log in as root, or log in as root in any way that requires root's password for that matter, but there are other ways to become root. Try for example sudo -i followed by whoami and you'll see that you are indeed logged in as root. Also, if you do ps aux | grep root you'll see that you already have lots of processes on your system running as root. So, arguably, root is not disabled.

root isn't disabled, it just doesn't have a password if you don't give it one yourself.
