Default SSH root@server does not give root permissions


I am working on a VPS running centos 6.4 with the latest stable Ispconfig installed.

I am able to ssh as root into the machine, but it appears I really don't have root permissions everywhere.

For instance, if I cd to /var/www/.../web1 and try to create a new directory with 'mkdir test', I get a permission denied error.

mkdir: cannot create directory `test': Permission denied

The directory permissions are:
drwxr-xr-x 18 root root 4096 Jul 21 10:47 web1

What is causing this and how do I fix it?
