Hi,I set simply reverse proxy (backend is an Apache web server):
upstream backend {        ip_hash;        server 127.0.0.1:8080; }

server {        listen x.y.w.z:80; # IP goes here.        server_name
somedomain.com;        expires off;        location / {
proxy_pass http://backend;            }        real_ip_header
X-Forwarded-For;
        # Set proxy headers for the passthrough        proxy_set_header
Host $host;        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
access_log /var/log/nginx/domain.cache.log cache;        access_log
/var/log/nginx/domain.access.log;}


While browsing website, I see lots on entry in
/var/log/nginx/domain.cache.log file (of course in
/var/log/nginx/domain.access.log too).My question is: with this
configuration, is there any caching active?

Example of cache log:
