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.

    I could've sworn CP had been logging in one of our worlds, but as of a couple days ago when I have been inspecting blocks, it turns up no data on everything... It works just fine on all of the other Multiverse worlds we have, and there has not been a purge either.

    I looked in both the Multiverse and CoreProtect config files and see nothing out of the ordinary, what am I missing? :\

    EDIT: Alright, so it seems that it IS logging on the world in question, which is good. Just not sure what happened to the old data. Oh well. :)

    Alright. I had a feeling that was a possibility. Thank you for the reply.

    The MySQL co_blocks table is likely corrupted. I advise contacting your host regarding this.

    Hi there,

    We're having an issue with our block placement data, although I'm not sure if it's just the database or Coreprotect itself: Our host was having MySQL problems, which caused coreprotect to toss a constant error due to the loss of connection to the database. When the problem was resolved a few hours later, we noticed that there was no block data being found on blocks placed/broken/modified before the MySQL problem was resolved. All other lookups (i.e. chat, kills, etc.) appeared to function fine. When I inspected our co_block table in phpMyAdmin, everything checked out, and all 2.7 GBs of data was present. We are on spigot 1.7.10 (Last build, no protocol hack) and we are using Coreprotect 2.0.9. No other console errors have happened since the connection problems.

    I'm at a lost as to what to do from this point on, so if anyone out there might know a fix (hopefully one that will allow us to keep our data..), please do share it! Thanks in advance.

    Hi there!

    It is not compatible with the spigot? :( (server: spigot-1500 MC1.7.9-R0.3, java 8, linux)

    Will this be made for Sponge, (search spongepowered), as it seems that Bukkit's future will not last long?

    I think Rev 3 breaks core protect but i cant test that theory

    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?
