504 time out error

Nginx Apache PHP Ubuntu 16.04

I'm using digitalocean $10 package for deploying few applications. I have 4 active applications running on it. Sometimes I'm getting error like this,

"504 Gateway time out - nginx /1.0.6"

Can't figure out why this happening. Any idea?

i think its because of "clientheadertimeout"
add following to your main nginx conf.

client_header_timeout 12;
