i have the nginx config below, and the fascgi backend takes lot of time to
process the request. this is expected. but nginx returns error before it is

 upstream timed out (145: Connection timed out) while reading response
header from upstream, client: X.X.X.119, server: YYY.com, request: "POST /
HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://A.B.C.D:8492", host: "AAA.YYY.com",
referrer: "http://xx.y.com/

can you tell me what config i should change/ increase so that nginx waits
for some more time before returning this error.
thanks a lot!

    upstream backend_XX{
        server A.B.C.D:8492 fail_timeout=1s;
