    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)

    @Connor Mackay
    How does the mysql relevant config part look like?
    When you are using dev build, thats my fault.
    Wait for v1.27 release today.

  4. Offline


    idk, have to fix some permissions and implement enderman logging.
    Shouldn't take longer than a few hours.

    RC1 for 1.8.1

    Added endermen logging

    Please be aware that the tool permissions changed:
    logblock.tool ->
    logblock.toolblock ->

    Thanks that worked, Great pluggin btw =) much appreciated
  8. When I install this (after only editing 2 settings, the mysql stuff, and the worldname) I get an end of stream error every time. I'm running 1.8.1.

    Errorlog could be informative :D
  10. I get stuck at "Downloading Terrain" when I install 1.81... And then it just goes to end of stream. No error files are created.

    I meant the errors in the console ...

    I had an error where logblock was not connecting to the database to create the tables and such. I tried inserting the IP address and domain name into the config file and nothing worked. I logged into phpmyadmin and tried created the same user but instead of username@localhost, I used username@% and it worked perfectly. Any help as to what caused mysql to change like this? I have never had it happen before. I don't know if it is unsecure, but maybe suggest it to other users as well?

    EDIT: It didn't work for Hawkeye either, so it isn't LogBlock's fault.

    You can specify an ip (the of your minecraft server) instead if wildcard '%'.
  14. Offline


    Do you mean in the mysql, like username@ipaddress or on the logblock config file? If you are talking about the config file, then it doesn't work as I stated already. I am assuming you already read post, gonna add usernae.ipaddress to MySQL. BTW, really looking forward to Guardian and thanks for the help. I love developers who actually take the time to help out with stuff.

    I get errors with 1.30 i :/ but it works what does this means?
    and after i uppdated now i get this message all the time "Attempted to place a tile entity where there was no entity" i had it before to but now it spams all the time.
  16. Offline


    Wrong error. This one is due to a config change, which resolves itself by autoupdating the config after first start.

    Ok thnx
    it says there is a newer versionv1.26 i use 1.30 isnt that leatest version?

    Again forgot to update the update tracker.
    @Connor Mackay
    Looks like there is something wrong with your MySQL server.
    It's a remote one from what I see there. Try this:
    You can also add Waterflow to excludedPlayers in stats config :D
    Interesting, I thought PEX has old Nijikokun Permissions compatibility ...
  24. Offline


    so it is PEX usses? i have to report this?
  25. Offline


    Think so, as old Permissions and Groupmanager worked
  26. Offline


    yes but now most plugin abbandoned old permissions in favor of bukkit permissions, so tell me what i have to do, i have to report it to PEX or wiat a your upgrade to PEX apis

    Does LB say something about chest logging at server start and you've still enabled chest logging in world config file?

    You didn't set MySQL connection data in config.
