LogBlock

Works 100% with 1.7 / 1.8

The best block logging and rollback solution for the savvy server administrator.

LogBlock is the best block logging plugin for Bukkit server. Not only is it awesomely powerful, it’s blazing fast! Everything is logged into a MySQL database, allowing developers to hook in and produce things such as player stats and even administrative panels. Every loggable action can be logged with LogBlock: WorldEdit, leave decay, fire, sign changes, explosions, chest changes, player and animal deaths, chat, commands and more!

Development builds of this project can be acquired at the provided continuous integration server. These builds have not been approved by the BukkitDev staff. Use them at your own risk.

LogBlock will very rarely break between Minecraft / Bukkit updates, however if you find it does, please be sure to try a development build from above, as we generally test new releases there until deemed stable.

What is LogBlock?

LogBlock is a tool which allows you to keep track of almost everything on your server, while also giving you the ability to rollback (revert) or redo changes made by users and natural occurrences such as liquid flow or leaf decay. Additionally, LogBlock is able to log and rollback chest contents, sign text and more! LogBlock was originally created by bootswithdefer for HMod, ported to Bukkit by DiddiZ and is now actively maintained by md_5, ammar2 and the community of developers on Bukkit. We accept pull requests on GitHub frequently which means that community developers can add features they wish to see quicker than LogBlock developers are able to from tickets. All database actions are run not only in their own threads, but are queued into a consumer to minimize lag on the main thread. This is great for larger servers! All optional features (not dependencies below) are enabled and disabled from within the config file allowing complete control over what is logged thus ensuring database size is kept to a minimum.

Notices

Most virtual chest plugins are not compatible with LogBlock. Because they do not set the player who is opening the “chest”, LogBlock can’t do what it’s meant to be able to do, thus, making errors in your console. Please report these issues to the fake-chest plugin developer, NOT LogBlock developers.

Issues are read more frequently on the GitHub Issues page as compared to the comments below. When updating to LB1.57, if you already have a large database and have changed your columns to MEDIUMINT, INT or LARGEINT, you do not need the updater to fix this for you automatically. To stop this behaviour, simply change “version” in the configuration to ‘1.57’.

If you are experiencing an error such as this please read the FAQ for answers.

If you're receiving errors regarding players from the consumer such as "[Consumer] Failed to add player <playername>" then change all `playerid` columns to MEDIUMINT or INT in each table that contains them. This may take a long time if you have a lot of rows.

Optional Dependencies

  • WorldEdit (Recommended)
  • Permissions plugin
  • LogBlock Questioner

    @RaileneZ: Go

    I believe it's "/lb page 2".

    If you're still having trouble looking at the logs, use a piece of bedrock and click things. If you're placing the bedrock or breaking blocks then your permissions aren't set up right. If your logs aren't carrying over after reboots then you need to set up the mysql properly. Also if you're trying to just log chat, you can try using the server logs in the logs folder (extract them with WinRAR or 7zip).

    Sorry for the length of the post, your first question was worded a bit vaguely. :P

    Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: Access denied for user 'username'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

    You actually need to configure your database settings.

    @Bronzeteufel: Go

    The UUID is only stored once per player, the performance/storage overhead is negligible

    @frymaster_127: Go

    Okay, thank you! Is there an option to decide whether LogBlock should use UUIDs or nicknames? Can I still lookup changes like "playerxyz destroyed cobblestone"? I'm just scared of losing a lot of space and performance if every blockchange will save name & UUID.

    @Bronzeteufel: Go

    It'll try to match their (offline) names to real accounts and real UUIDs. Even if that works, people don't log in with their real UUIDs (the offline UUID is based on their name) so it won't be able to match the players that join to the UUIDs it figured they had.

    So you'll end up with two sets of player records for each person, the migrated record (which will either have someone's random online UUID or a "couldn't find their UUID"), and a new record, which will have their offline UUID

    As long as you are looking things up by name, this probably doesn't matter, since both records will have the same name

    Are there any known issues updating to 1.94 in offline mode?

    How do you like, look at a different page. Like, /lb chat and then a different page? Sorry, i'm a noob.
