It is possible to install some modules for Nginx if you are using the official Ubuntu package.

Several modules are provided by the default Ubuntu repositories and others can be found in alternate PPAs to be installed via apt.

While the most common modules can be found packaged for less common ones it may still be necessary to compile them with Nginx.
