In this mini article, I’m going to show you how to install the EPEL and Remi Repositories on CentOS. These repositories contain some useful tools and utilities, which can help improve your life as a Systems Administrator. They also contain updated versions of certain softwares, such as MariaDB and PHP.

Let’s begin!


1. Install the EPEL and Remi Repositories

This step literally can’t get any easier. Simply run the below commands, and the repositories will be downloaded and installed on your system


CentOS 6.7

rpm -Uvh
rpm -Uvh

CentOS 7.1

rpm -Uvh
rpm -Uvh


Enable the REMI repository globally:

nano /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo


Under the section that looks like [remi] make the following changes:

name=Remi's RPM repository for Enterprise Linux 6 - $basearch


You’re done!
