How do I activate or Enable EPEL repository?
First we have to download the file repo using ' wget ' and install using ' rpm ' system to enable the repository. Below the Link for Your Linux OS system. (Make sure that you are logged in as user root).

To install the programs in a Linux distribution such as CentOS or RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) is indeed a living typing the command yum install followed by the package name. But not all programs exist in the repository defaults. For that sometimes we need to add another repository that offers more free software and open source. The most common is the repository EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) maintained by the Fedora and can be utilized by the Linux distro that is still a family (RHEL, CentOS, Oracle Linux, Scientific Linux), so it's not limited to CentOS only.

The easiest way and it is strongly recommended to first try is to install it via yum, and his direction is:
yum install epel-release

But this requires the existence of CentOS Extras repository in your server, e.g. no or you fail then we can add it manually depending on the version of CentOS and architecture you use.
