Re: How to set a rule for "Filter By Expression" on MWG 7

Hello Shiva,

with a MWG default installation I couldn't detect any specific problems with the sites you mentioned. Only was very slow and triggered the progress page for some elements, which seems to cause problems.

If the internet connection is slow or the webserver unresponsive you might get progress pages for some elements where you don't want to. In these cases it would help to either disable the progress page alltogether or change the settings so that there is more time to transfer the content before the progress page is displayed. Normally you would want progress pages only for bigger or very slow downloads, not for normal site elements.

The Progress Page is a part of the Common Rules and can be found under Progress Indication:


You could try to disable it and check if your problem with those sites goes away. If it does not, it would be custom rule you have defined. You access log should give you a hint what is blocked.

If the disabled progress page solves the problem, but you still want progress pages for longer downloads: Enable the rule again and just change the settings:


Important are here the Timeouts (Delay for redirects to progress page). The default value is 5, you want to increase that, maybe to 15 or something like that. Depends on your network, you might have to try different values to see what works for you.

Hope that helps,
