    LogBlock release are on DevBukkit:

    LogBlock dev builds:

    Please read the installation guide

    I won't port LogBlock myself to mcAPI. Source code is available, so it shouldn't be to difficult for someone else to do it, also I'm still here. so I can answer questions. If there is more than one willing, that's up to you to handle that.

    The reasons I take this step, are the usual: I quit playing Minecraft about 5 months ago and lastly I was struggling to keep up with updates. The developement of Guardian made slow progress, so I fear it won't be ready to fully replace LB in time.

    LogBlock logs block changes into a MySQL database. Block changes can be placed or destroyed block, explosions, burned blocks, sign text changes, chest access, leaves decay etc.
    It can be used as griefer identification tool, to find out who build a particular building, or even roll back changes by certain players. Other purposes can be e.g: Undoing of forest fires
    All additional features are optional, to keep the database as short as possible. All database actions run in their own threads to avoid server lags.
    The use of permissions plugin (or any clone) is possible, but not necessary.
    Uses Spout for chest logging (but it's fully optional, and there is no need for the client mod at all).

    • Logging for block placing, block braking, fire, explosions, leaves decay, signtexts, lava flow and chest content
    • Very mighty commands system, not only allowing to rollback and redo, but also to tp to blockchanges, delete log ingame etc. Full list of commands.
    • Many parameters for lookup/rollback/redo/tp/clearlog commands: Block changes of one ore more player, in a specific area, in a world edit selection, specific block types only, block changes older or newer that a specific date, destroyed/created block only, in a different world and combinations of all these parameters. Full list of parameters.
    • Rebuilding map after importing a backup (/lb redo)
    • Last parameter to use the parameters of the last command
    • Quick ingame lookup of block history a wood pickaxe or a bedrock block.
    • All commands accessible from console (exept tools :D)
    • Custom queries for tools.
    • Different tool modes (lookup, rollback, redo, writelogfile and clearlog)
    • Saves block data like wool color, log type, torch adjustment, etc
    • Multiworld and multiserver support (some servers sharing the same database)
    • BigBrother log import
    • Loggable super pickaxe plugin (not to confuse with WorldEdit's super pickaxe)
    • API
    • Webstats
    Why to use LogBlock:

    Example commands: (thanks to tha d0ctor, read more about commands here)

    /lb rollback player fire since 1d3h – rolls back fire 1 day 3 hours
    /lb rollback player fire since 1d3h area 15 – rolls back fire 1 day 3 hours within a radius of 15 blocks

    /lb rollback player thad0ctor since 1h - rolls back thad0ctor 1 hour
    /lb rollback player thad0ctor since 1d area 5 – rolls back thad0ctor actions for the last day within 5 blocks
    /lb rollback area 10 since 1h30m - rolls back all modifications within 10 blocks since the list 1 hours and 30 mins
    /lb rollback area 10 before 06.11.2011 - roll back all changes in an area of 1o before June 11th, 2011
    /lb rollback player thad0ctor since 05:36:00 - roll back all changes of thad0ctor since 05:36 (server time)

    Autoupdater doesn't work as expected ...
    And paintings are entities not blocks, they don't fit tin the current db schema
    You need to use the name of you MySQL user. And you need a MySQL server :D
    Put the data of your MySQL server in config?

    Ok, I'm not sure I understand what they are asking here? I've traded a bunch of messages and feeling confused.

    Their last message is

    What exactly did you ask them? All you need to do is ask how to get the script to attempt to connect to the web hosting server instead of the local host server.
    java.sql.SQLException: Access denied for user 'engineer_mind'@'' (using password: YES)
    The error above indicates that it is not connecting to the correct server, this is your issue (not a coding error).

    I'm not sure what this means? To me it means engineer_mind coming from the my minecraft server IP is denied. From what I'm getting they are say it should beengineer_mind'@ This # representsMySQL location. In my opinion and I'm all new to this I need to create a user engineer_mind'@' that is allowed. When I create a user; though, there is no choice about IP's So, I guess I'm not sure what I'm talking about.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks, MindEngineer

    Would that be v1.33?
    The players are getting mad/unpatience by those griefers, so I will use v1.32 now.

    So every connection to from of engineer_mind is denied.
    Your mysql user is still lacking remote access privileges.

    Ok, I went to my "Remote MySQL" section and found that there is a wildcard I can use. Once used it works.

    Thank you for your help!

  14. I know you guys are merging. But i would still like to make a feature request. We have a problem on our server finding the specific time something was griefing. Logblock uses local server time it seems, so mods from america and other places in eu have to convert in order to find the time something was griefed and roll it back.

    It makes it time consuming, and heck of a job to roll back a place that has been griefed by for example a pack of people.

    Is there any way you can tell logblock to synchronize with your timezone and have it convert, so each mod can have the time something was griefed displayed in their timezone? It makes it easier to calculate.

    Or maybe the logging can be revolutionaized, and use internet time or something similar instead
  15. Offline


    Sorry but in the serverlog you have a time stamp of the server locally right?
    Like: "2011-10-14 00:20:11 [INFO] Starting minecraft server version Beta 1.8.1"
    Server time is: "00:20:11 "

    For me our server uses USA Central time. I just have to think minus 7 hours, because I live in the Netherlands.

    Hey have a minor issue.

    Wanted to check a new map as the main one forgot to disable logblock and hawkeye doing so.

    Now I have allot of crap date for today only 14/10/2011 in the logs.

    Anyway to purge it?

    I believe this plugin is causing a very massive memory leak on our server when creating chunks soo much that 6gb is reached in seconds when just me on in a blank world creating them and the ram never comes down, it always stays up there, I have detailed the full extent here before I started my thorough testing.

    Disabling this and hawkeye the server never goes over 2gb at all when creative mode flying creating chunks.

    Did you put the name/pw of your MySQL server in config?
    Yesterday commended how easy it was to set up :D
    Give google a try and search a mysql setup tutorial in your language, i belive there are tons of.
    /lb clearlog since 14.10.2011 00:00:00 before 15.10.2011 00:00:00

    It rather a memory leak than logging flowing lava and other environment actions.
    I've got a workaround in mind (not logging environment actions in a chunk before a player changed there something) but this still needs a bit to be thought about.
  20. Offline


    Will try the fix.

    So Its good your aware of it as it we cannot generate any new chunks at all due to instant crashing pretty much.

    Any ETA?

    Gotta tell my players a rough estimate how long they won't get new biomes or worlds for.

    As it is server is still whitelisted for getting stuff setup but we can do without any map generation for a bit.

    Memory seems to be high everywhere really with logblock active.

    Just checked the logblock config and mining world which we want to introduce doesn't have a config.

    So the ram usage is going up even when the world is not logged.

    As said its a memory leak somewhere with the plugin.
