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.

    @bluebird337: Go

    CoreProtect doesn't perform auto updates.

    I advise checking your server log files for errors.

    Coreprotect was working amazingly over a month ago, but lately it's taken very long times to perform /co rollback or /co lookup if those commands work at all. Was there an update recently? I have automatic updates set to true. Also, with /co inspect it is returning "block data not found" for blocks placed in real time to test it. I thought it was something gone wrong with my host's mysql database communicating with my server, but I switched to another host and another database and it didn't fix the issues for long. The commands worked for a short while then the same issues began happening. We've been using the latest binary patched version of Spigot. I'm not sure why it works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. Right now, it's been broken for two days intermittently.

    I have been using coreprotect for about a year with no problems, but I switched to start using a SQL database. It seems to be writing to the database just fine, but every time I "inspect" blocks it is telling me that there is no data for that block. What am I doing wrong?

    I have a small server with my friends, in which I use the coreprotect.inspect permission. In my file, I have only 1 group, players. All of the players have the same commands, except the ops have more (like time set and tp). For some reason, all commands don't work for non-ops (ex: ops can use /co i where non-ops cannot, even though they have the same permissions. Is there something I need to change? Please help!

    P.S. This is the same with all of the other plug-ins I have as well.

    cloudfrosthosting still hasnt responded to the ticket on our server if someone havething the same problem could try other revisions of 1.7.9 then maybe it would work. let me know what works for you

  • Avatar of DarkFoxDie DarkFoxDie Oct 26, 2014 at 08:16 UTC - 0 likes

    yeah i cant open our server to the public unless i have a reliable plugin and its not just coreprotect thats doing it for me prism and logblock dont seem to work. im going to find a new server host pretty soon because the support im getting from cloudfrosthosting is crap and i cant change from spigot to bukkit without contacting them....

    but due to mojang trying to take them down

    It's actually not Mojang. EvilSeph said he couldn't keep working on Bukkit and it was internally decided to shut down Bukkit. Mojang stepped in and said they own Bukkit, which Dinnerbone said he'd updating Bukkit to 1.8 on his free time. Some folks didn't like Mojang claiming ownership over something open source, and one of the big contributors flexed his legal rights as he (and anyone else who contributed) owned the rights to his code. Due to lots of reasons that you can read about on the forums or Reddit (which has a much better summary), all Bukkit or Bukkit-based software (like CraftBukkit and Spigot) links for downloads had to be taken offline everywhere. That DMCA was against Mojang, not from Mojang. :( [Sorry for the off-topic. It's just sad seeing all the misinformation with people thinking Mojang is shutting all these projects down.]

    If you have direct control (and remote access to) the server machine and can clone your server folder, I'd drop in CraftBukkit to see if the same happens, or if you're running the latest patches on top of Spigot I'd try the last Spigot version before the DMCA struck. That way you have two baselines (CB and unmodded Spigot), and then if neither of them experience the problems you can start applying patches and monitoring the issue to see if it crops back up. Of course you'd want to run that cloned server to make sure the issue persists when it's just you on there.

    Assuming you haven't, the only other suggestion I have would be to back up your CoreProtect config and then delete it, restart the server so it generates a fresh, and see if that's the cause. I haven't had to on CB, but I have experienced that issue before with another plugin.
