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.

    What about deleting for example 60 days old data?

    Is there is any way to repair/recover a possibly corrupted CoreProtect database? I know it's on a bad drive, but it works perfectly fine (no errors using the plugin). Logging works perfectly, rollbacks work perfectly, no data is missing. But I need to move the database to a new replacement drive, and Windows prevents me from doing that.
    My database is almost 50GB. Windows can copy about 2/3 of it before it gives an error. Using an SQLite database browser, I was able to narrow it down to something in the block logging, though I was not able to narrow it down further. It seems to be particular entries that have errors, so I'd like to remove these entries.
    The rest of the database seems fine, I am able to view all entries (both through in-game logging and the database browser).
    Any idea how I could repair/recover my database? My world is very large and I can't afford to lose the whole database.

    I've used this plugin a long time now, and it definitely is the best.

    However, it would seem it has difficulties in registering certain inventory transactions, namely between inventories and Hoppers, aswell as Hopper with Minecart -entities. Is this simply poor configuration on my side, or does the plugin not support said transactions? If it doesn't, I'd like to have this added, if possible.

    OMG This is the best plugin ever!!! Someone in my server didn't respawn in his house (which was in the farlands) and didn't take note of his x y z coordinates. But when I used the /co lookup command, I was able to find his house. Thank you for this plugin! I don't know what I would've done without it.

    I used this plugin to rollback a grief, and another house rollbacked too, and when i did /co undo, the house has been griefed, and I tried /co restore and his house was gone, What happen?

    @Jackmawer: Go

    the thing is I actually tried that and the same outcome happened lol, I'll ask mcph to try and see whats up with that

    @HellJumperCentral: Go

    Huh? There isn't anything else! You just put the jar in the plugins folder and it automatically sets everything up.. As I recall MCPH has an automatic plugin installer. Just stop the server, use that to download and install CoreProtect and start the server again. Done!

    @RRodolfo: Go

    Look for something about permissions. If you get 3 boxes with 1 number in each, or a box with 3 numbers, set the numbers to 777. If you've got checkboxes, tick all of them. If your permissions are incorrect this should fix them.
