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.

    My database has gotten so huge that /co purge seems to fail no matter what I try (over 300 million rows). Can I just delete everything from the co_block table before a certain time using MySQL, or does the plugin update other stuff when /co purge is run as well?

    Is there a way to check if someone moved an item in their inventory? I know that this would fill the logs up and over do the system, and probably bay way to much strain on the server. But is there a way to have like a little system to check someone inventory logs to see what they moved around inside their inventory.

    @KingFaris10: Go

    Having two single chests next to eachother isn't supported behaviour.

    @HyKurtis: Go

    I'd advise contacting the author of the plugin, and asking them to add support for CoreProtect (via the CoreProtect API)

    @vanthoi: Go

    "/co purge t:7d" will remove any data older than 7 days. If you have 4.3GB of logged data in the last 7 days, then the size of the DB won't be reduced.

    Hello! On our server we have a plugin called MobCatcher which allows you to throw and egg at a mob and aslong as you have the required diamonds the mob will drop in an egg form for you to pick up.. Well, our server is a survival server which has a no grief rule.. Players like to steal other players animals/pets which of course is griefing. We would appreciate it if there was some sort of way to see records of mobs that have been caught by this plugin.. If this is possible and you happen to do it thank you very much!

    Hello I would like to use this on my server, but when I restart my server the folder isnt created, idk why this is happening, and help?

    Hi, I keep getting this in the console when I open certain double chests:

    Does CoreProtect cache all chests or something? Because one of the plugins used on the server sets the block where a player dies to a chest. Sometimes, this chest can be next to another chest. This is when I think the ClassCastException occurs, as it still thinks the block is a Chest and not a DoubleChest (as I use setType(Material.CHEST)).
