I am not sure about the details, but basically, it means
something along the following:
The connection of the proxy server to the upstream server 
(your backend behind the proxy) timed out before the
the response body has been recieved.

This could be a slow backend or a bad timeout setting
on your proxy. But before you do anything: Update your
apache! This is a very old and broken version.
It's likely the problem goes away after an upgrade
to apache 2.2, which solves a proxy timeout issue.
