@cyounkins: the Openssl patch was needed for openssl 1.1.1 which was in the repos before apache supported it. Instead of holding the old version (as the main repo did) i included this patch. When bumping the version it was not needed and I thus just commented it for now. Will be removed in the next update.

What is the OpenSSL patch, and why is it disabled?

@fordprefect, that's ARM 64 bit.

@aperion: what architecture is that? officially supported is 'i686' and 'x86_64', sometime 'armvX' is also used (for compatibility with ALARM), but i have never encountered 'aarch64'.

Could you add "aarch64" to the PKGBUILD? I tested it and it works. Thanks for all the work you put in guys.

The problem does not occur in extra/apache, which includes the tools as well. I have not yet had time to narrow down which compilation option in this PKGBUILD is at fault. If someone can spare some time, its sped up significantly.

Same problem @acmzero, it is just hangs doing nothing. No idea how to fix it.

@acmzero: thank you, much appreciated. i can confirm this issue and will look into it. nevertheless, i never use this tool and am short on time until next week minimum, so if you (or anyone else) happen to find a solution before me, please share.

EDIT: first investigation shows, that this breakage occurs in earlier versions (2.4.{23,20}) as well, 2.4.18 wont build with (and without) openssl1.1-patch. so a deeper look into that patch (taken from extra/apache) could be helpful, even though it does not work on plain http either. nevertheless i am in no means qualified to do that. we'll look for help in other places then…

I was trying to do a benchmark to a local web app I have. I installed this package (apache-tools) and when trying the benchmark it is just hangs doing nothing.

I posted the video because is self explanatory. The ab command is not throwing any error or anything just hangs.

This is the version that I have installed at the moment.
apache-tools 2.4.25-2

@acmzero: wtf, cant you give explanations like normal people? do a strace and a gdb run with it and report proper problems. and not some spurious link to a video…
