    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)

    Put the username and password (these likely consist of numbers or special chars) in singlequotes, like:
    password: '123'
  3. Offline


    Yes thank you that did it :p

    But another thing is all plugins that manage block markings like wand in worldedit. And your "bedrock" tool. destroy the block when its clicked on. Suppose its a bukkit bug since its like that.

    You can use WorldEdit selection, too.
    Make a selection and use /lb rb sel (all other params also work)

    What do you want to say with latter?
  5. Offline


    The message was a little confusing :p but what i meant to say was that when i click a (lets say dirt) it get deleted then respawns a few seconds later. This happens also with the "axe" in worldedit.
  6. Offline


    Hm, yeah, maybe bukkit.
    Which cb version, and are you in creative mode?

    I happened to have tested that yesterday with 1337 in crative mode without disappearing blocks.
  7. Offline


    its the #1487 build.

    Im creative but the server is running survival

    Hi im having a slight problem updating to build #67 on cb #1488 the logblock connects fine to the SQL and loads the plugin. Although when i edit a block and use the tool to check the log it says no blocks were modifed. No errors appear on the console either. Any ideas?


    EDIT: it seems that the plugin is only logging players on the SQL database.
  9. Offline


    Hm, tested and can't reproduce that.
    Checked server.log for errors?
  10. Offline


    it might be a conflicting plugin will try it with just logblock.
  11. Offline


    Also have a look at your lb world config, I changed the config nodes. (I added an autoupdater, but I know it failed often in the past, so ...)
  12. Offline


    fixed it lol didn't realize that the break block node was default false my bad. Thanks for the help!
  13. Offline


    @DiddiZ Hate to say this but I think time get rid spout for chest logging :) Know its a bit more work but I think you see why! No need to downgrade such an amazing plugin waiting on other people always!
  14. Offline


    Yeah, it really is.
    It's planned to implement HawkEye chest logging and keep Spout cheest logging (latter is more precisely).
    Maybe I can do that tomorrow.
  15. Offline


    Another question, what happens when you connect two logblock to the same MySQL server? I cant rename the folders it creates so, idk if logblock does this automaticly.
  16. Offline


    Yea that happens with all plugins that use wands. Except they usually respawn in .33 of a second. You may be having lag problems, but idk.

    Edit: If it breaks INSTANTLY then I think you have some creative plugin found that or something.

    I don't know for sure, but I think you can rename them. You can change the name of the tables. If you do that it should work just fine (make sure they don't have the same name).

    EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.

    never had that problem before, that they spawned later, it takes like couple seconds for them to respawn, therefore i think it might be the dev bukkit since it also happens to worldedit, there i also have never seen it before.

    Normaly i dont notice the block despawning, even when looking for it.
  18. Offline


    Folders? Just rename the tables in world config of one LogBlock.
    Then only players table (no matter) and chat logging will be mixed up.

    Thanks :)

    What the heck? I updated my server and LB to a dev, and when I did a rollback it froze my server???
  21. Offline


    That shouldn't happen.
    Any error log? And which command caused that? How many blocks?
  22. Offline


    Not sure, and it left no errors, just froze. It was only 1225 blocks I think...
    It worked the next time I tried it, not sure why...

    I know that I'm going to sound like a huge noob, but can someone give me a hand? I'm trying to install this mod onto my private, dedicated-hosted server, and most of the mod installations (mcmmo, lwc) go like this: "Upload the .jar file. Done."

    However, this one requires MySQL and a database and stuff, which I have no clue how to set up on a private server over a TCAdmin panel. Can somebody help a poor noob out? I'm really eager to get this anti-grief on my server :p
  24. Offline


    Well you should ask your host if they offer MySQL databases, and ask them if there is a way you could get FTP/SFTP (if you don't have it already) as it makes it much easier to config/upload files.

    I lowered the rollbacked blocks from 1000 to 100 per tick, this may help.

    How do I enable dumpdeletelog? Its not in config. I did /lb clearlog world legit since 555 d and well it effected all worlds so I would like to know how to get that dump working.

    Just got LogBlock up, running and tested with the latest Minecraft 1.0.0/Bukkit 1488 and the dev snapshot Spout release.

    There is a catch, which I think was there before the release, but I never looked into until now: the database created by default has to be altered by the following:

    1. alter table `lb-players` modify column onlinetime time default '00:00:00';
    2. update `lb-players` set onlinetime = '00:00:00' where onlinetime is null;

    Otherwise, it throws SQL Exceptions like this:

    2011-11-22 20:48:17 [SEVERE] [LogBlock Consumer] SQL exception on UPDATE `lb-players` SET onlinetime = ADDTIME(onlinetime, TIMEDIFF(FROM_UNIXTIME(1322016497), lastlogin)) WHERE playerid = 3;:

    java.sql.SQLException: Data truncated for column 'onlinetime' at row 1
    at com.mysql.jdbc.SQLError.createSQLException(
    at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.checkErrorPacket(

    at com.mysql.jdbc.ConnectionImpl.execSQL(
    at com.mysql.jdbc.StatementImpl.execute(
    at com.mysql.jdbc.StatementImpl.execute(
    at Source)

    Once this change is made, the onlinetime field updates correctly:

    | playerid | playername | firstlogin | lastlogin | onlinetime | ip |
    | 1 | Console | 0000-00-00 00:00:00 | 0000-00-00 00:00:00 | 00:00:00 | |

    Hope this helps someone else get their server up and running on the new builds. :)

    I've also added two indexes to help speed up the access when having to do rollbacks:

    create index `lb-main-player` on `lb-main` (playerid);
    create index `lb-main-date` on `lb-main` (date);

    Side note - never realized that the tables containing the block data were configurable - we were inadvertently logging all of our worlds to the same table. I would suggest changing the default table name from lb-main to lb-{world_name} so that it doesn't happen to others.

    It should be in main config clearlog.dumpDeletedLog. But it'll only work if the MySQL server is on localhost AND the user that runs the mysql server (htop to figure out) has write access to plugins/LogBlock/dump/

    I can't reproduce that. The onlinetime column is NOT NULL, so the default value (oo:00:00) is used implicitly when adding a new row instead of NULL. I may add the explicit default, but that shouldn't matter anyway.
    These indexes do exist now, it might be that your table was created by a very old logblock version, before I added the auto updater.

    About the lb-main: I coded LB for my server, where the world (or rather the server, this was before multiworld) was called main :D
    But meanwhile it changed to lb-world every except the default config in the package, I think.

    Will hitechwizard's workaround actually work for build #1492? Didn't really understand your reply, diddiZ.

    To get LB working with bukkit 1.0.0 use latest lb dev.

    Using latest dev build of bukkit(1.0.0) and latest dev build of logblock and I get no errors but nothing is being saved in DB :X
