Did you read the URL that we both pasted?

NOTE for RHN users
You need to also enable the 'optional' repository to use EPEL packages as 
they depend on packages in that repository. This can be done by enabling 
the RHEL optional subchannel for RHN-Classic. For certificate-based 
subscriptions see Red Hat Subscription Management Guide. For EPEL 7, in 
addition to the 'optional' repository (rhel-7-server-optional-rpms), you 
also need to enable the 'extras' repository (rhel-7-server-extras-rpms).

NOTE for CentOS users
You can install EPEL by running yum install epel-release. The package is 
included in the CentOS Extras repository, enabled by default.
