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.

    No problem. And yes, that's exactly what you'd do. The table structures for SQLite / MySQL should be identical.

    Many thanks for your reply - exactly what I was hoping for.

    I have one further question - if I want to migrate to MySQL is it simply a case of extracting the SQLite tables and migrating them in to MySQL ones with a similar table structure? Or are your MySQL schemas radically different to your SQLite ones?

    Once again, thanks for your help, and for this amazing plugin - we'd be lost without it...

    @chrisotherwise: Go

    DELETE FROM co_block WHERE time < 'TIMESTAMP'

    TIMESTAMP being a unix timestamp. If you want to purge data older than 30 days, you'd take the current unix timestamp, and subtract 2592000 seconds from it.

    So, for example, go to and get the current unix timestamp. If it says "1000000000", and you want to purge data older than 2 months, you'd double 2592000, and subtract it from 1000000000. (1000000000 - 5184000 = 994816000)

    You'd then run the following command: DELETE FROM co_block WHERE time < '994816000'

    This plugin is sucking ass. I recommend using another rollback plugin.

    I have a huge CoreProtect SQLite database (over 100GB). I tried to purge it using the CoreProtect purge command, but I ended up with the entire system running out of disk space and an unresponsive server.

    If I copy my database to another computer, can you suggest some sqlite commands that would allow me to purge the database directly without there needing to be minecraft running?

    Many thanks.

    @GAMEMASTER161: Go

    Not much you can do with this plugin for a corrupted chunk, CoreProtect would have to be able to load the chunk. Best you can probably do is delete the chunks file and co restore the area to re-apply block changes.

    You could also try world edit, but once again you're loading up a corrupted chunk.
