Enable EPEL on a RHEL/CentOS 7 And 8 Server

Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) is the group that creates, maintains and manages high quality packages for RHEL, CentOS and Scientific Linux.

To enable the repo all that is needed is the epel-release RPM.

RHEL/CentOS 7

yum install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm

RHEL/CentOS 8

yum install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm

The epel-release RPM will setup the RPM EPEL gpg key and the required yum
repo files.
