The bird is down, I repeat the bird is down!

Hello,

My name is Aaron and I am an aspiring Wordpress developer. I am currently using Dreamhost as my hosting solution. I recently discovered your plugin suite and thought I would give it a spin. In trying to speed up my site with Hummingbird by Gzip Compression I received this error.

"Gzip is not working properly:

- Your server may not have the "deflate" module enabled (mod_deflate for Apache, ngx_http_gzip_module for NGINX)
- Another plugin may be interfering with the configuration
If re-checking and restarting does not resolve, please check with your host or open a support ticket with us."

I tried re-checking, but to no avail. Might you be able to assist me in this endeavour?

Thank you Wpmudev!
