Re: Using proxy_cache_background_update

Hi Maxim,

I stripped down my configuration and removed 'unneeded' parts to reproduce.
I'm able to reproduce it with the following settings:

location / {
# Added to mitigate the issue. Removed for testing
#rewrite ^/index.html$ / break;

proxy_pass http://backends;
proxy_next_upstream error timeout invalid_header;
proxy_buffering on;
proxy_connect_timeout 1;
proxy_read_timeout 30;
proxy_cache_background_update on;

proxy_http_version 1.1;
proxy_set_header Connection "";

proxy_cache STATIC;
proxy_cache_use_stale error timeout invalid_header updating http_500 http_502 http_503 http_504;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
proxy_set_header Accept-Encoding "";

set $no_cache "";

proxy_ignore_headers Cache-Control Expires Vary;

# Removing the if construction and leaving the "expires" in place solves the issue!
if ($no_cache = "") {
expires 1s;

proxy_cache_valid 200 3s;

To test the call I used curl and wget:
curl --verbose --header "host: www.example.com" -o /dev/null
wget --header "host: www.example.com" --output-document=/dev/null

The Apache logs show:
example.com - - [26/Feb/2017:18:49:17 +0100] "GET /index.html HTTP/1.1" 404 43193 "-" "curl/7.26.0"
example.com - - [26/Feb/2017:18:53:22 +0100] "GET /index.html HTTP/1.1" 404 43194 "-" "Wget/1.13.4 (linux-gnu)"

I captured traffic using tcpdump and Wireshark shows the following:

Original request with curl

GET / HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: curl/7.26.0
Accept: */*
host: www.example.com

Resulting request from Nginx:

GET /index.html HTTP/1.1
Host: www.example.com
User-Agent: curl/7.26.0
Accept: */*

HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

Thanks in advance,
