    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)

    Forgot to mention, that you've to drop the "-chest" table. (There is no information yet in there, so that isn't a problem)
  3. Offline


    Having the same problem as jsmoove98 here too. My -chest tables are filled with records tho, is it definitely okay to remove them?


    seems the records were all populated with nothing :/ removed them and all seems to be well.
  4. Offline


    Yup, once I thought bukkit would have chest hook sonn, and I created that table. Since there were no hooks, I logged only chest open (no in/no out) as 0. Now, I think that table format was bad and changed it :D
  5. Offline


    I see :)

    How does the chest logging work now out of interest? I can see items and things being logged in the -chest tables, and comparisons being made in the server logs. But using a stick on chests doesn't show who accessed it or anything like that now. Is the querying of chest access/changes yet to be implemented?
  6. Offline


    Huh? I deleted that debug message ... What exactly does it say?
    And yes, it's implemented.

    EDIT: It looks like you're having one of my earlier dev builds. Are you relly using v1.00rc1?
  7. Offline


    Curious, I wonder why i can't tell that someone accessed a chest then :/

    As for the logging, here's a sample of what's showing up in my server logs:

    It's still throwing up the comparing output in the logs. Logging of chests is working correctly in game now though. i can see who added/removed things from chests etc. when i hit it with a stick

    CB 798. Can't get LogBlock to run. Says it can't connect to my SQL database. iConomy can connect just fine.

    Can someone help me out with the string for my connection? The errors lead me to believe the format may have changed.

    /lb rollback player jsmoove98 time 1 minute
    the difference between /lb area and /lb area sum players should be obvious :D
    Hm, forgot lb world ...
    /lb area 99999 sum players does the same

    I'm also getting hit with messages like yours and I'm using the latest rc1. Can't find dev build :/. Also experience some lag over a period of a few hours and craftbukkit consumer is turned off.

    I'm sorry, missed one debug message
    Hm, i wish I knew what causes the scheduler to fail on some servers ...
  16. Offline


    Would you consider db4free reliable enough to trust with your LogBlock database?
  17. Offline


    Well, no. I prefer to have a local one, but for a little private server it might work.

    Fixed spamming chest compare.
    Moved query at player join to the consumer, so it's asynchron.

    Ya unfortunately my hosting provider doesn't provide SQL databases, but we all have to make compromises. Are there any other free db providers you know of?
  24. Offline


    Hm, it's a bit unstable I know. As said, it's a hacky workaround, only done because of the public demand. It qoiute not good, but better than nothing.
    It's the only one with remote access I know.

    Finished the commands reference for v1.00:

    I have a suggestion...
    Allow this plugin to log the use of a superpick in WorldEdit or even WorldEdit commands such as //set or //replace.
    I would like this because recently people have been complaining about the superpick being an issue even after I try to remove it...

  28. Offline


    Well, WE could use the LogBlock api, otherwise it's hard to catch commands. For the superpickaxe exists a plugin: Superpickaxe

    Can you please properly rollback two-block items? (beds, iron doors, wood doors, etc)? These are griefer items because they aren't 100% fixable with log block :( (i.e. it only removes HALF of the block)
