Add EPEL and REMI repository on CentOS 7

Those great repositories are reliable and updated so I use them almost on every server I setup.

Add EPEL repository:

sudo yum update
sudo yum install epel-release

Add REMI repository:

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
sudo wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm 
sudo rpm -Uvh remi-release-7*.rpm

The REMI repository is disabled by default, so you have to edit and enable the aproppriate sections:

sudo vi /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo

Now run yum update and enjoy latest software from EPEL and REMI repository.

A big thanks to all contributors of EPEL and REMI repositories!
