    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)

    How to post error messages:

    I won't aswer questions to general MySQL setup/installation/what is MySQL (there are lots of good tutorials out there, use google)
    Please read the installation guide before asking a question about installation problems.
    Please read the FAQ before posting a error report. It may be solved there.
    In case of rollback or lookup problems: Type /lb savequeue and try again (when it's fixed then, it was a consumer problem, see FAQ)
    When you post error messages, it's important to paste the whole stack trace!

  2. I'm sorry but I can't find this anywhere... (I probably fail at reading :x) How do I make it so the tool gets the log for the block you place/hit? I tried /lb tool area 1, but that makes it grab the logs of all blocks on that Y axis. I'd like to get precise information from the block I hit D:
  3. Offline


    I'm sorry, I stated it wrong everywhere :'(
    It has to be "area 0"
  4. Awesome, thanks! :D

    Could you make it default to that in the next version :p? And make it so you only have to type /lb toolblock chestaccess rather than /lb toolblock chestaccess area 0?

    I've just switched from BB to this and imo it's much better to have it defaulting to that :p.

    It's easily possible ... why didn't I thought about? :D

    further testing required to determine if it is hanging during rollback or mysql query, however i believe it is happening during the query stage. Everyone begins to time out and server scrolls read timed out messages. no way to stop server, must kill server. It should be noted that this is happening during fairly large queries. Such as 30 days etc. My server averages 50 people 24 hours a day, up to 85 on at once. database is stored for 4 days currently.

  8. Oh how do you do a BB log import btw? It doesn't seem to be anywhere in the wiki?

    Hm, It's a deadlock at the connection pool.
    Strange, i neither use an on clause nor an id column in lb-players.
    Maybe you should redownload lb.
    It's at the download section, but you're right, I should better write it to the wiki.

    Why can't I rollback fire? I've enabled it in the config and when I use the command to rollback fire specifically it tells me that it can't find anything. Rolling back an area doesn't restore any burned blocks.

    Do you use the time parameter for fires older than 30 minutes?
    /lb rb player fire area 15 since 1 hour

    Hm, you could delete all tables and let them autocreate again.

    Yes, but it still tells me that no damaged blocks could be found (words to that effect anyway).

    thanks for your fast replies.

    unfortunately, same issue, same failure message.
    deleted all tables and let them recreate didnt solve it.
    wtf should on clause mean? when i hit a block with the wooden pickaxe it pops up in my log
  16. Offline


    Hm, try placing some blocks and burn these down to see whether fire gets logged at all.
    on clause is a part of mysql syntax.
    I really don't have I clue how it could got messaed up in a that strange way.
    But I should implement a debug mode, that displays the query

    OK, I managed to fix it...I did something a noob would do and not enable it in the actual LogBlock config- I had enabled logging somewhere else...

    Thanks anyway!

    Tracked that deadlock down (thanks for that thread dump), and most likely fixed it. Tell me whether it works :D
