Cannot install rpm to download and install other software

Hi guys!

This is my deal. It might have a simple solution but I'm sort of stuck here. I want to install Filezilla in a new workstation operating with RedHat 7. According to my google searches, in order to install it I need to first install an rpm by using:

rpm -ivh

When I do this I get the following message:

warning: /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.7KI7Ku: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 0608b895: NOKEY
Preparing... ################################# [100%]
file /etc/rpm/macros.ghc-srpm from install of epel-release-6-8.noarch conflicts with file from package redhat-rpm-config-9.1.0-63.el7.noarch

I believe these means that it couldn't be done properly and of course when I run 'yum install filezilla' I get the message that the package is not available... Anyone that can provide some insight? I've googled about this issue but I haven't found an adequate answer.

Thanks erik2282!

I've tried that already and what I get is the following:

Loaded plugins: langpacks, product-id, subscription-manager
rhel-7-workstation-rpms | 3.5 kB 00:00:00
No package epel-release available.
Error: Nothing to do

You are trying to install an EPEL 6 package in RedHat 7. Follow the instructions to install 'epel-release' for EL 7 (not EL 6), then you should be able to follow erik2282's suggestion:
