Install EPEL repository on CentOS 8

EPEL(Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) basically includes the essential packages you need. That is the reason why you have to install it before you start to set or adjust your CentOS server. This post will introduce how to install EPEL through dnf on CentOS 8.

Step 1

Install EPEL

First of all, let’s click this URL to find the download path of EPEL:
You can see many files’ link in the EPEL download page, but you have to do is that copy the URL of a link “epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm”.

And then you can use the URL of “epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm” to download and install EPEL through this command dnf.


Step 2

Update Repository

I recommend that you could run the updating as the installation was finished to ensure your server has capability to find the stable version of packages.
