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.

    @ryan10290: Go

    Idk what else to recommend.. Try to reset the entire plugin..

    Edit: how long do you wait for the plugin to rollback? And how big of a size you trying to rollback? Bigger the size = Bigger waiting time

    I've been using this plugin for over a year on my server. It's just recently starting to not rollback anything

    @ryan10290: Go

    I can roll back stuff just fine. If you just installed the plugin and want to roll something back it will not work because the plugin is logging things the moment you install it not before it.

    This plugin is logging everything on my server correctly but does not rollback anything. Is there any way to fix this? I am running Spigot 1.8.8 and the latest version of core protect.

  • Avatar of snipershotmaster snipershotmaster Aug 19, 2015 at 19:57 UTC - 0 likes

    Can you add an option that a specific item will allow the user to see who edited an item by right clicking it? P.s: add the r:#we parameter in the help because i keep forgetting about it and i cant seem to find it in your plugins help xP

    Edit: like /co inspect but automatically binded to a tool Edit again: Like Logblock!

    @c0wg0d: Go

    Here are all the purge queries. '0' should be replaced with a unix timestamp (all data earlier than that date will be deleted).


    "Data purge started. This may take some time."
    "Do not restart your server until completed."

    "Purging old sign data..."
    "DELETE FROM co_sign WHERE time < '0'"

    "Purging old container data..."
    "DELETE FROM co_container WHERE time < '0'"

    "Purging old skull data..."
    "DELETE FROM co_skull WHERE time < '0'"

    "Purging old session data..."
    "DELETE FROM co_session WHERE time < '0'"

    "Purging old chat data..."
    "DELETE FROM co_chat WHERE time < '0'"

    "Purging old command data..."
    "DELETE FROM co_command WHERE time < '0'"

    "Purging old block data..."
    "DELETE FROM co_block WHERE time < '0'"

    "Cleaning up database..."
    "OPTIMIZE TABLE "co_world"
    "OPTIMIZE TABLE "co_player"
    "OPTIMIZE TABLE "co_sign"
    "OPTIMIZE TABLE "co_container"
    "OPTIMIZE TABLE "co_skull"
    "OPTIMIZE TABLE "co_block"

    @aviswing: Go

    Please ensure you're using Spigot 1.8.3 or higher.

    No you are not running 1.8.7 Not even close. Your on 1.7.9. A server admin should be able to read console logs.
