So I'm trying to install fastcgi_cache_purge which is supposely a third party module https://github.com/FRiCKLE/ngx_cache_purge from https://www.nginx.com/resources/wiki/modules/ but this would require me to recompile nginx or reinstall nginx from a different package which I don't want to do.

However from looking at my original nginx repo http://ppa.launchpad.net/nginx/stable/ubuntu/pool/main/n/nginx/libnginx-mod-http-cache-purge_1.14.0-0+xenial1_amd64.deb I found this mod which on description said: Purge content from Nginx caches content from caches used by all of Nginx proxy modules, like FastCGI, Proxy, SCGI and uWSGI. Which say essentially the same thing as FRiCKLE ngx_cache_purge. My question is, is it the same thing? If so can I just install it like so?

sudo apt-get install libnginx-mod-http-cache-purge

anyone else encountering this?
