I believe this is clear enough: nginx wasn't able to connect to 
upstream (backend) server.  Check backend server and port returned 
by auth_http script.

After PASS command nginx will try to authenticate client with 
auth_http script and then connect to upstream (backend) server.  
As soon as connection to upstream times out - nginx should return 
"-ERR internal server error" in reply to PASS command (if client 
is still here).
