How do I fix? gzip, mod_deflate, neither seem to be working

Here's my situation:

I'm currently using Economy 3 Shared Hosting with Linx Hosting with cPanel. When attempting to use Gzip compression I get the following:


Gzip is not working properly:

  • - Your server may not have the "deflate" module enabled (mod_deflate for Apache, ngx_http_gzip_module for NGINX).
  • - Contact your host. If deflate is enabled, ask why all .htaccess or nginx.conf compression rules are not being applied.

Based on what I've been reading, mod_deflate is enabled on all Linux hosting plans. However, I cannot seem to get gzip to work. My .htaccess file is configured properly to callup gzip, yet it still fails to work.


Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be?
