Can I set proxy_read_timeout for only a particular location which is
passed to apache?

http://wiki.nginx.org/HttpProxyModule#proxy_read_timeout

This config causes nginx to serve the request instead of apache:

location /for-apache.html {
proxy_read_timeout 30m;
}

Can I pass for-apache.html to apache and wait 30m for it?

In nginx, one request is handled in one location. Only the configuration
in, or inherited into, that location applies.

To send to apache, you need the proxy_pass directive – which has
documentation at http://nginx.org/r/proxy_pass

So the answer is “yes you can, but you have to configure it”.

Got it, thank you.

location /for-apache.html {
proxy_read_timeout 30m;
proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:8080;
}

That’s a good resource.

http://nginx.org/r/proxy_read_timeout redirects to the official
documentation for the directive, and if it says “context: location”,
then it can apply to a particular location.

location /for-apache.html {
