How To Enable The EPEL Repository On CentOS

October 9, 2019 Liquid Web

In this video, we describe how to add the EPE: repository. The EPEL repository is an additional package repository that provides easy access to install packages for commonly used software. This repo was created because Fedora contributors wanted to use Fedora packages they maintain on RHEL and other compatible distributions.

Commands used:
yum install epel-release -y
cd /tmp
wget (for CentOS 7)
yum install ./epel-release-latest-*.noarch.rpm -y
