SVG uploads crash our wiki

A very technical issue related to the Wiki (and not to LLD) --

In trying to build a compact table from Karen's CSV file on our Wiki, I had
to resort to creating small SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) files to "draw"
vertical text for the column headings.  However, I can't seem to access the
SVG file once it's uploaded -- the request hangs and eventually a "proxy
error" is returned.  My guess is that the SVG file somehow causes Apache
(the Web server) to crash.  Any other problem should have at least resulted
in an error message (either HTTP error 500 or a PHP error from Mediawiki).

What can we do about this -- is there a technical contact who can check the
Apache error log to see if this is indeed the case, and if so, to fix it?
 (I do have the technical know-how to handle this myself, but I'm guessing I
won't get that kind of access to the server machine.)  If not, I guess we'll
just have to make do with two tables, one below the other, each covering
half the columns.

Please advise,
