When I try to upload a file to Assets, I get this alert:

Could not upload the file - server returned an unexpected response. Please check the server settings.

The console shows a 500 error when trying to access a url: https://www.mysite.com/index.php?folder=16&ACT=24&qqfile=my-file.png

When I load that URL directly in the browser I get this message:

{"error":"There was an error uploading your file: Getting content length is not supported."}

My server's PHP error logs don't show anything.
