In a Drupal site, user roles and permissions are an important way of controlling access to the site. This is more so important when there are multiple individuals besides the website owner who administers the site. Other people can be assigned certain 'roles' which define the kind of access that is to be granted. Basically in Drupal, the Site maintainer and Administrator roles are given all the available permissions and Drupal Administrator role receives all permissions throughout the lifespan of the site. This is not the case for other 'roles', where access within admin permissions and time limits only are granted to users linked to those roles.
