citserver fails to start, saying "Database contains compressed data, but this citserver was built without compression support."

This error can occur when you upgrade Citadel or attempt to port your database to a new host, when the old host has ZLib and the new host does not. Since some of your database contains compressed data, the new host will not be able to understand it.

ZLib is now a requirement for Citadel.
