I have copied the htaccess file from HTML5 Boilerplate into my httpd.conf file and restarted Apache, but for some reason, gzip compression is still not working:

I have tested to see if the modules referenced in this boilerplate code are loaded, and they seem to be, but perhaps with different names. Do I need to modify the module names so that the code works, or could the problem be elsewhere?
