That message usually means either that the nginx that is being used does
not include the module that is expected; or that one of the included
modules is not compatible with the version of nginx that is being used.

What version of nginx are your versions of those two modules documented
to work with?

(If they are not documented, then possibly you are the first person to
try this particular combination.)
