Thats the problem... I dont have shell access. I just ran an info.php and found out I have the ZLib supported.  So I guess not as much an issue as I thought. Thanks guys for bearing with me. I'm new to all the hosting and programming side,  I use to just do the frontend design now I'm trying to expand my knowledge.
