I can't turn off the "Cache pages for anonymous users " cache option.

I uncheck it and then hit save as usual but it stays on. Is there some sort of module conflict causing this or possibly an issue with the database?

    Check settings.php for a config override on that variable – Clive Oct 30 '15 at 9:06
  • thanks clive that was it. I had some leftover varnish code inside the settings.php file. after commenting out all is ok – Anon Ymous Oct 30 '15 at 21:34

There might be issue of below module or other which would be having issue of cookie stored causing the issue for not caching the page.

Commenting out or deleting unused memcache and Varnish code within my settings.php file solved the problem.
