Hello Helper,
I tried to install "git" first (before Phalcon-php) using PuTTY and the reply I get back it YOU NEED TO BE ROOT TO PERFORM THIS COMMAND.
Kindly help with a detailed guide on how to go about the whole process

Thank you for contacting us about a "YOU NEED TO BE ROOT TO PERFORM THIS COMMAND" message. If you're familiar with managing a Windows server, you know then that the Administrator can edit any files on the server and perform any tasks they need to. Linux has a similar administrative account, but it is named "root" instead of "administrator".

You can Request Root Access from your AMP(Account Management Panel).

Let us know if you have any further questions.

Thank you,
