Put another way – can I store/cache all content from the proxied
(up to the limits defined in proxy_cache_path), but serve from the cache
only when the proxied upstream fails (e.g. timeout, error)?
We have content that should be dynamic, and hence every request should
transparently proxied. However, I want to protect against the situation
when the upstream is down or having trouble. Serving a stale response
(though normally undesirable), is better than returning an error.
