Cannot disable caching

Hello, I’ve been banging my head on this for a day now.

Nginx as caching frontend and Apache as backend on

How it’s supposed to be:

  1. /i/ is not passed, but served from FS
  2. /bsbs/ is passed with NO caching
  3. /torrent/ is passed with NO caching
  4. Everything else is passed WITH caching

What happens:

  1. /i/ is passed to Apache, but cached;
  2. /bsbs/ is cached;
  3. /torrent/ is NOT cached;
  4. Everything else is cached.
  5. Also requests to (no end slash) get forwarded to

What am I doing wrong? Tanks in advance.

Server config:

proxy_cache_path /u02/nginx-cache-one levels=1:2
