    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)

    look in the DB file see if the player(s) are all ready there, if thay are go to V1.00 till diddaz get s back

    i also get this error randomly me and diddaz are working on it a simple /reload fixes it for me

    can u please give a link to this bukkitcontrid thanks

    @ morganm try this /lb rollback player FIRE time 8 hours

    Yes, it is a big log, looked at this today and the message is at 30000. The log is over 3 million entries long at this point. The timer I'm assuming is under lookup and "defaultTime:"? If so, it's already at 3o minutes. And I've put logblock to version 1.00, that isn't happening in the log yet, but we'll see.

    @ Huts

    And it doesn't put anything below that so I can diagnose the problem. I tried rolling back a huge sphere last night. Safe to say, lesson learned, can't rollback worldedit. But since then it hasn't written to my MySQL server. I've reloaded the plug-in and done everything short of punching my computer. It was working perfectly before I tried doing a radial rollback.

    Yeah I'm stupid (first time admin,2nd day in) I changed my toolblockID to 302 because I want to lay bedrock down as an op. Is there a way to disable using a block for id and just use the pick?
  12. Offline


    the block id u have picked is chain-mail its not a "block" if u look in the config theres 2 diffrent log checking IDs one is 270(wood pick) the ouother is 7 (bedrock) if u want to lay down bed rock change the tol ID 7 to like 56 (dianmond ore block) the dimond ore cant be up-tained by players, should it should be safe

    Without anything to back it up, it looks like chest logging is causing some lag on my server. Especially in an area with lots of chests.. but nobody was trying to even access the chests.. just walk into that area.

    Only think I can say Is I removed the bukkitcontrib.jar and set it to false in the config and it was back to normal.

    Is it possible to logblocks in a nether world?

    BUG: BukkitContrib.jar seems to interfere with other plugins and their wands ie. Wood axe in WorldEdit

    Looks like every one is getting this issue! Hopefully this is easily fixed. i'm using db4free is that the issue? or the plugin!

    Regarding the queue overload, I have my server set up with these options and it's still reaching the tens of thousands between our regular 8~ hour restarts. It bogs the restart time up to 5-10 minutes from it's usual 10 second timer.
        delayBetweenRuns: 3
        forceToProcessAtLeast: 0
        timePerRun: 100
        useBukkitScheduler: false
    If I decrease delay & timeperrun I should see a shorter queue as it's updated/saved faster?
  24. Offline


    Change the sonsumer settings:
    lower delay and increse timePerRun
    That interests me too. I once saw a griefer on a server causing that, but idk how.
    /lb rollback player creeper
    Well, what does the history of the griefed blocks say?
    Yup. Add it to loggedWorlds and add a table for it (in config).
    BukkitContrib is not my plugin. ->
    decrease delay and increase time per run

    Also I'm not very happy about. I'd really prefer Bukkit proving the chest hooks. Since many people were demanding the chest logging I assumed it would be a good temporary solutin to use BukkitContrib.
    I'll make the questioner also optional as soon as I can. Noone should be forced to run extra plugins.
    I'll ask aforess about. What version? v0.2?
    Huh, an infinite loop ...
    Looks like a random bukkit error, disable lavaflow logging to avoid.
    Did the console spam some (about 1612) error messages?

    Yea I worked around my issues but setting lava logging and chest log to false.
  26. Offline


    Hm, since the queue size was decreasing, it there were most likely no new block changes but a many from a prior fire or explosion. As you removed bukkitcontrib you had to reload/restart and the queue was processed.

    @sfxworks @LittleNiamh
    Does the failed to add player message stop to spam after a reload/retart?
    If yes, I found the reason, if no, please tell me about your MySQL setup (remote/local server).

    I have 2 different Servers running, both are logged with LogBlog but now i want to setup a single Server with multiworlds. So my question is how can i use the old database ? Both configs looks like this:

    config A:
    - lb-main
    - world3

    config B:
    - lb-rpg
    - glacier

    Would it be like

    - lb-rpg
    - lb-main
    - glacier
    - world3

    Are you running openinv? I had the exact same problem as you and openinv was proved to be the problem. I'm running world edit and world guard with logblock and bukkitcontrib flawlessly.

    No it doesn't. I ended up having to go into mysql workbench and manually adding him while giving him a random ID.
