    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 can either just use:
    /lb area 10 destroyed

    Or set up an own tool for this:
        defaultEnabled: true
        mode: LOOKUP
        - at
        params: area 10 all limit 15 desc silent destroyed
        leftClickBehavior: NONE
        item: 352
        rightClickBehavior: TOOL
        permissionDefault: 'FALSE'
    You'd need the permissions and could get the tool with /lb at

    I have a big problem i use latest dev 70 and 1499 and everythng works in console plugin loading propperly but nothing logs why is that i have never had problems before.
  4. Offline


    i used bigbrother on my old server and set the database to max. 31 days.
    Does this plugin keep it forever or is there some sort of auto-clean up?
    i can't find a max days setting and there's no info in the guides
  5. Offline


    is it compatible with 1.0.0 ?
  6. Offline


    Reenable the things you want to log in world config, the config schema changed, but I haven't yet reimplemented defaults.

    It's not that simple anymore :D is the config option you're looking for.
    Change world "world" before 365 days all to world "world" before 31d all
    Replace "world" with the actual world name, and set clearlog.enableAutoClearLog to true.

    Hi again! i dont know why my members cant use /lb toolblock .. says no permission but its clearly there.
    Using PermissionsEX / Permission Compat with Yeti Permission..
    Actually it was working fine before i installed Permission Compat you support both permission plugins at the same time? cause some of my plugins need the yeti permission since its not compatible with PermissionsEX and so forth
  8. Offline


    All lb needs is the permissions bridge, Yeti permissions has that built in, PEX has a Permissions.jar (from PEX zip) for that. So, I'd guess it's now using yeti, you can't do much about, beside removing yeti, changing the load order (difficult and risky) or set LB permissions in yeti config.

    So with default config LogBlock saves everything except water and lava flows for 365 days?
    Isn't that a little long and much data for a mysql db on a small minecraft server?

    I tried that but it didnt work. i found out how tho. thanks.

    Thanks, but should it look like this?
  13. Offline


    By default, auto clearlog is disable anyway.
    The config is just an example, that is meant to be least harmful as possible.
    Better have someone complain about the log keep time, than about loosing half of his log :D

    I guess it consisting of numbers or special chars?
    put it single quotes, like:
    password: '123'

    You may have one of the old, bugged config files. Delete it, restart the server to regenerate and set data again.

    Ok I'll try that out. Should I just go to the top of this plugin page and click on Download? Or is there a newer download?

    I got this message after I started my server. I just downloaded the top download that said it was for the #1337 build. I have the #1510 Build but it works for all other #1337 builds.

    Nah, no need to download anything. Just remove/rename the config.yml.

    Hm, it can't connect. Are you sure about the data?
    Does the MySQL server allow remote connections?
  19. Offline


    Well the server IP is "" and instead of "localhost" for the 'host' I put it as "" which is my external IP. ( is my disguised external IP)

    Do you think you can help me with Teamviewer?

    Either install the Spout version suitable for you CB:
    Or disable chest logging in LB config (or updater.installSpout which essentially is the same)

    I can't see an error there ...
  25. Offline


    I don't see an error there either. I got rid of the plugin and the server starts. I added the plugin back and the console shows everything as normal and when it gets to there nothing else happens. It doesn't continue. That is the last thing it shows before freezing. No one can log on to the server as well. What do you suggest?
  26. Offline


    Could be Spout. Delete Spout.jar and disable installSpout in lb config.

    server doesn't have and hasn't had spout.

    kk, then have a look at the server.log file. Sometimes errors are suppressed in console.

    Not sure if this is a bug or my fault but players right clicking a block with a wood pickaxe even though they cant use any /lb commands can see the log for that block.
    How do I make it where only I can use the right click with the wood pick axe to see the log?

    @DiddiZ @Poliice

    I had the same issue, my server starts now but LogBlock doesn't work. It seems to run fine but then absolutely no logs show when I check with /lb tb or any other means, it worked yesterday, it might have something to do with #1509? I literally get no logs or any other kind of message showing when I left/right click with the toolblock or tool, but LB seems to still work(eg. still giving me toolblock) I've also tried things like /lb area 10. Shows absolutely nothing, it's like you didn't even use the command. No error messages either, only this:

    I also see this but I'm not sure if it's related:

    Players have got the tool permissions by default when using bukkit permissions.
    If you are using some kind of a permissions plugin, you are missing the permissions compat (Permissions.jar in pex).
    This are three seperate issues:
    1. I changed the world config format, in your case the auto updater didn't work, what is also the cause of 2.
    2. Set version in config to '1.30' and restart, missing columns are created then.
    3. You missed the player in the command: /lb player diddiz since 5m
