I think, indirectly, yes.

If you want your nginx to react to some external status (e.g., the
up-or-down state of a MySQL DB), then you need to indicate how your
nginx will become aware of that status.

(For what it's worth: if there is nothing new in your system since
November / December, the suggestion remains "change your php to do this".)
