  • ...and the list is still expanding!

How to use the inspector.

Once you have the inspector enabled ("/core inspect", or just "/co i"), you can do the following:

  • Left-click a block to see who placed that block.
  • Right-click a block to see what adjacent block was removed.
  • Right-click (place) a block in a location to see what block was removed at that location.
  • Right-click (place) a block in another block to see who placed it. (ex: place dirt in water to see who placed the water)
  • Right-click on a door,button,lever,chest,etc, to see who last used it.

A Few Reviews

  • "It's easy to use and lightning fast when it comes to rollbacks."
  • "I've been running a MC server since before Bukkit, so I've used just about every block logger out there. CoreProtect is the best and the fastest."
  • "Go with CoreProtect. It's fast, updated frequently, and logs WorldEdit."
  • "Overall it felt more natural, simpler, and much faster to use CoreProtect than Prism, which just doesn't compare."
  • "CoreProtect brings complex logging and rollbacks, whilst at the same time keeping a low profile."

Plugin Metrics

This plugin utilizes Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which anonymously collects and sends the following information to

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version

Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true.

    There is something because it didn't occured before and otther tables in MySQL use utf-8 caracters without any issue

    @fastlockel: Go

    I have the same problem. I wish it would at least filter out or replace the invalid characters, so that it doesn't spam errors and delete chat logs.

    I have this problem constantly with chat logging as players are able to use chat colors and special symbols in chat. Both of these throw an error and do not log what was said. Main/

    Since last update SQL exception on co_chat in MySQL on insert of any string with european characters. Like 'Tête de wither" or "été" See below.

    I TRIED : 1) use UTF-8 for the table 2) force UTF8 for the table and column ALTER TABLE co_chat CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci;

    ALTER TABLE co_chat CHANGE message message VARCHAR(255) CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci;


    I Have not tried to delete my co_xxxx tables bug it is unsure of success and will loose ALL my data

    java.sql.SQLException: Incorrect string value: '\xEAte de...' for column 'message' at row 1 [17:23:17 WARN]: at com.mysql.jdbc.SQLError.createSQLException( [17:23:17 WARN]: at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.checkErrorPacket( [17:23:17 WARN]: at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.checkErrorPacket( [17:23:17 WARN]: at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.sendCommand( [17:23:17 WARN]: at com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlIO.sqlQueryDirect( [17:23:17 WARN]: at com.mysql.jdbc.ConnectionImpl.execSQL( [17:23:17 WARN]: at com.mysql.jdbc.PreparedStatement.executeInternal( [17:23:17 WARN]: at com.mysql.jdbc.PreparedStatement.executeUpdate( [17:23:17 WARN]: at com.mysql.jdbc.PreparedStatement.executeUpdate( [17:23:17 WARN]: at com.mysql.jdbc.PreparedStatement.executeUpdate( [17:23:17 WARN]: at net.coreprotect.database.Database.insertChat( [17:23:17 WARN]: at net.coreprotect.database.Logger.log_chat(

    I'm getting no issues with Spigot's 1649 build running the latest CoreProtect, so it's pretty safe to say that you shouldn't worry at all when it comes to using Spigot :) BFAK:90942384,dc1f019bd54fd275c40292a49a72dc42f5c267e4e68362deb247b14b5a8472c7

    Am I right that this isn't updated for MC 1.8?

    It does work with carbon, a few errors you get in console but it does work.

    How can I use CoreProtect on MC 1.7.2 (I think it was available a 1.7.2 version)?

    I would like to ask a question the the developers to CoreProtect:

    Sinced I have started sampling the CPU use of my server I have noticed that CoreProtect uses 8.6% of the CPU on and another 7.1% on I would like to know why CoreProtect is 15.7% of my server's CPU use

    Does this plugin offer support for 1.8 items/blocks introduced by other plugins like Carbon?
