    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)

    ... don't use a MySQL logging plugin then?
    Although, if you're not using MySQL you're probably using FlatFile which is a terrible idea for block logging :p

  10. I would love to download this and implement, unfortunately your download links are broken :(

    UPDATE: I found a download link somewhere else on this site...

    Is it possible to use this with Microsoft SQL Server? I looked into it quickly but I'm going to assume the answer is no.

    Hey guys,
    For some reason when I do the command /lb tb, it gives me the bedrock, but it only places the bedrock, which means I am unable to remove the bedrock without creative. Is there a reason why LogBlock is not working?
  14. Offline


    use /lb tool

    The pickaxe is a lot better, you can just right click with it and it'll show you the block history. and the only reason it wouldn't work is if you weren't using a MySQL database.

    Try the Dev build, I had the same issue and using the Dev build sorted it.

    Ah, thanks very much!

    I am using a MySQL database....

    I've installed LB on my Server on CB 1.3.1 (#2309) it works PERFECT!
    The only problem I have is that everyone can use the tool to view the stats of a block. I use PEX to manage the perms and I've read through the Perms of LB but I wasn't able to find anything to block this.
    My question, is there any config where I can configurate that only people at a specified rank can use the tool to view the stats (for example, Moderator).


    P.S. Sorry for my bad english ;) I'm from germany

    Das musst du mit PEX handeln, ich verwende es auch und bei mir geht es richtig, du hast ja wohl nicht allen Leuten alle LB Rechte gegeben? ich habe fast nichts negiert.

    meine config einstellungen in pex sind noch diese hier:

    parent-nodes: true
    enable: true
    strict-mode: true

    wenn du mehr fragen hast schau auf dem server oder im forum nach mir.

    Das ist genau das Problem, ich habe zu LB noch gar keine Rechte vergeben, außer Moderatoren die Möglichkeit einen Rollback zu machen. Sonst eben KEINE aber trotzdem kann sogar der niedrigste Rang das Tool nehmen und benutzen. Und mein Problem ist eben das ich nicht weis welche Perm das ist die ich bei PEX angeben muss, ich habe in den Permissions hier auf der Seite nichts dazu gefunden :/
    Hoffe du kannst mir helfen.

    I have LogBlock all set up with MySQL and everything, and I do /lb area 5 and see recent breaks/placements, it all works, but when I do /lb area 5 chestaccess or /lb chestaccess it doesn't show ANYTHING even though I have people take items in and out. Help?
  26. Offline


    I have your newest logblock enabled, and everything is working so far, except when people take items from chests, it only logs 1 page. No matter how many items i go over, it overwrites the old stuff and theres never a page 2. So by the time somebody empies their whole bag into the chest, theres no log left of what was taken before. I think ive had this issue for awhile. I can change pages when im doing searches on chestaccess in a world etc, but when im using a tool on a specific chest, i cannot change pages.
