What Linux distro is it that you're using there?

CentOS 6 32bit and using WEBMIN/VirtualMin

PHP Version 5.3.3

phpinfo states _SERVER["HTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING"] gzip, deflate

So I guess the module is installed, I just need to enable it either site wide or Per Virtual Server (website)

I couldn't remember the details about mod_gzip on CentOS, but I searched Forums and found this post from a few months ago where I had researched that info.

The module mod_deflate has replaced mod_gzip, and is enabled by default for all domains on CentOS.

There's a few more details here, take a peek at this and see if it answers your question:
