    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)

    /lb rollback player fire since 1d3h area 15
    – rolls back fire 1 day 3 hours within a radius of 15 blocks

    So you only need to switch fire for diamond ore. Or rather it's id I guess? (ID is 56)

    Your auto clear log makes no sense.
    I don't get why it says before that means every block before 300 days will be gone I want all the blocks AFTER 300 days gone.

    Well I want it 3 months but that's what I mean it makes no sense. Why do you have before because it means that the new blocks will be deleted So does before really mean after because my log is massive and I want to clear it. Please help.

  5. It says the problem at the first line:
    2012-04-16 17:14:36 [SEVERE] Error occurred while enabling LogBlockQuestioner v0.02 (Is it up to date?)

    You need to update logblock to a never version.
    If your running the latest version of the server (1.2.5) you need to run the dev build.

    I am hosting this server on Beastnode and running into a little issue with logblock.

    This is what I see when I look at the console:

    And once again, logblock enables itself, then disables itself immediately afterwards. WTF?

    No database connected. Check your MySQL user/pw and database for typos. Start/restart your MySQL server.

    Where is the 1.2.5 dev build? On Jenkins I only see one from March 27.

    Did you set up a MySQL database? Are you hosting from home? If you are hosting from home, follow this video tutorial:

    If you already have a MySQL database, go into logblock's config file and edit it so that the databse information matches with what you're SQL databse is set up as.

    Not sure if this is the right place, but I'm trying to set up the default Webstats page for LB. However, no block data is shown when I load the page. I just get the bg image and the buttons, under the buttons, it says "None".

    I'm sure I have the database connecting correctly...

    No. before 300d means block changes earlier than 300 days ago.
    I'd guess it's the table name, it may be too long. Edit the 8_Year_Old's_Wild_Wild_West_nether.yml file in LB folder and choose a simpler name.
    Check the table names in config.php.

    Hey I have a guy on my server who Xrayed about 400 diamond on my server, but people at the same time also found some legit. Now I want to rollback HIM finding it, but also not his creations. Is there a way I can rollback HIM breaking the diamond ore (but not his buildings / creations), without rolling back others breaking the diamond ore?

    /lb rb player name block 56 since 999d
    or, if you also want to close the tunnels:
    /lb rb player name destroyed block 1 56 since 999d

    It should be this; world "world" after 365 days all (That means logs AFTER 365 days get cleared)
    You have done this; world "world" before 365 days all (That means logs BEFORE 365 days get cleared. That means you won't a get any new logs because it'll clear it because it's BEFORE 365 days.) Can you do the AFTER option or not so when blocks get older then e.g. 100 days it'll clear everything 100 days all that's the AFTER option.

    Thanks for replying.

    Again, no. What you want is the "before" param, it does exactly what you mean by "after"
    The name comes because the since/before params also accept timestamps and dates.

    since 300d: From 300 days ago until now.
    before 300d: Older than 300 days, records made more than 300 days ago.

    I downloaded the dev version logblock 1.52, only that there is a problem ... he is not showing the information of the players in table lb-players ... shows all set to zero, and taking the opportunity to ask another question ... is there any provision for the logblock works the blocks with world edit? Thank you.

    My regular player group only has, however they are able to use the tool(s). Nobody is Op. In the config permissionDefault is set to 'TRUE' for both tools. Any ideas why they can perform tool lookups?

    What is the best way to edit / reduce / prune my ever growing logblock database?

    Is there an upper limit, or will it just log blocks until the HD fills up?

    not really

    player fire = block changes CAUSED BY fire

    if you want to do something with diamond ores you need to use 'block 56'

    fire is considered both a player and a block. When used as player you are accessing all the blocks the fire burned, when you are using it as a block you are referring the fire itself.
  25. Offline


    Because of 'TRUE', which means everyone. Set it to 'OP'
