I think that means that you are trying to search an index that has
compressed properties (compressed by zlib).  Swish can't read that
index if it doesn't have zlib support.

Unknown document type HTML2 means that your config specifies HTML2,
but swish-e was not built with libxml2 (which supplies the HTML2

Have you tried asking your host provider to run this?

  apt-get install zlib1g-dev libxml2-dev
