    Version: 1.50​

    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)

    You have a VERY VERY big bug for multiworlds, when I rollback someone, say there house was destroyed, it brings that house back in every world.

    Wait, what?
    My first guess would be bukkit issue with 1.0.0 ...

    My server doesn't seem to be logging anything.
    I'm using:
    LogBlock b68
    CraftBukkit b1491
    Spout b545

    I don't get any errors. It says it connects to my database fine and that LogBlock is enabled.
    My server is giving issues updating to any Bukkit higher than 1491, so if that's the issue, I can't fix it.

    I've used this plugin a million times. I'm going to repeatedly hit my groin with a meat tenderizer if that's the issue.

    EDIT: Time to find the tenderizer.

    Yes, this is the console when I started the server up. The port matches just fine, I triple-checked.

    Sry for me not answering, but the forum failed to alert me ...

    You forgot to set MySQL data in LB config.
    It might be time to get a local MySQL server
    No, not anylonger. Use latest dev.
    Set config in version to '1.30' and restart, it should update the tables then.
    /lb rb player tnt
    Sure, you just need the permissions bridge (Permissions.jar) from pex zip.
    /lb rollback player 1born2kill since 10m
    Um, no. Flatfile is horrible to look up, and even worser at performance.
    In main config: updater.installSpout: false
    And then remove it.
    Set config in version to '1.30' and restart, it should update the tables then.

    Okay, this has been pissing me off for quite some time now.
    I have the latest version of Bukkit, and the lastest dev version of LogBlock.

    When I try to check to see if any changes were made to a block, nothing shows up.

    No logs are being input into the database.

    Using the LB tool always throws the message Position 2 - Set, regardless if I rightclick or left click.

    Trying to rollback myself does not work, as the command does nothing. No message, nothing.

    MySql Connection is working because it is creating the tables.

    No commands are working. help

    I seemed to have partly fixed my problem (error in YAML, although the console didn't spit anything out), although nothing is still being logged.
    LogBlock is working itself but when I break a grass block and fill it in with bedrock it says
    No Changes Found

    Yes, I have logging enabled.

    Please make this plugin work without MySQL, it would help me out so much.

    You have to enable what you want to log in world config (world.yml, or whatever your world is called).
    It's a dev build, I haven'r yet reimplemented the default loggings, so ...
    MySQL isn't that hard too set up.

    Great Plugin... Is there a detailed guide for each commands and params? if so, what is the best way to find griefers that destroyed someone's house... Because atm I do this

    /lb tool area 10 destroyed
