I'm manually deleting cookies to force caching and it isn't happening. Even if I set $no_cache to 0 in this particular section (or at the end of the if list) nothing happens.

This is the intended behavior. If the upstream responds something useful, cache it and serve it. Errors shouldn't be cached, and the stale cache should be served for that URL.

Comments aside, when $no_cache is set to 0 it mandates that the upstream response should be cached and the client should be served content from cache, right?
