Proxy_cache/story and busylocks workaround

proxy_cache workaround:

proxy_cache_path /cache keys_zone=localcache:10m;
limit_zone perUri $uri 10m;
server {
location /remote/ {
try_files $uri @fake @proxy-remote;
location @fake {
root /notexists;
location @proxy-remote {
limit_conn perUri 1;
proxy_cache localcache;
proxy_cache_valid any 999d;
proxy_cache_key “remote$request_uri”; # fix to suit your
proxy_set_header Range “”; # don’t pass range requests
to upstream in this section, otherwise response won’t be cached
proxy_pass upstream;
error_page 503 = @locked-remote;
location @locked-remote {
# take your own. e.g.:
proxy_buffering off;
proxy_pass upstream;
# copy paste locations if you need (feel free to share common

In case of proxy_store just remove @fake and set right root in /remote/

This is just a PoC, so you have to change it up to your needs.
It really works and nginx really rox =]

Sorry guys.
There’s problem with workaround for proxy_cache.
So it works with proxy_store only.
