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.


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

    Is there any chance that this plugin will get any sort of website administration tool for viewing logs?

    @Mixon87: Go

    Your queue has been flooded with a mass amount of block changes. This can be caused by having water and lava flow enabled and a large water flow occurring. If this is not the case, it is caused by LB not having enough time to connect to the SQL server and put all the changes into the SQL. Please read the 'FAQ' on the wiki.

    @jwpwns: Go

    How do you mean it is not working?

    @worldcity12: Go

    Contact your hosting provider for access to a MySQL database and input the correct information to the configuration file.

    @PhanaticD: Go

    Please read issue #200 on the tracker.

I keep fed up to found random build house and ect. I keep told player that they cannot get house with creative mode which they will be back normal player when it public. As I know that one person keep do it but I cannot blame her all time if I think it is her. I know that this plugin is useful to find out who did it.

    I installed it and restart server as well. I try test it and it not worked. It keep message everytime I try do different command on this plugin. It say 'No database connected. Check your MySQL user/pw and database for your typos. Start/restart your MySQL server.'

    What is that? I need your help for that. I need find it out before I deal with player.

    That is mysql overloading. Data isn't written as fast as it is produces, mysql is bit slow. Nothing to worry about if it happens rarely, if not then go to LB wiki and adjust the LB Questioner.


    These work for me -

    - logblock.tools.tool - logblock.tools.toolblock

    @bluehasia: Go

    There's a web-stats repo on DiddiZ's github, check that out, you might need to fork it and fix it though.

    @DuskShadowBrony: Go

    If it's the tool, right click the block you want information about. If it's the toolblock right click an air space for information or left click a block for information.

    @deleted_8156133: Go

    The main developer of Guardian, md_5, took over LogBlock as well and is solely working on it. Think of LogBlock as the new-old Guardian ;-]

    @CountIgor: Go

    Make sure that you're giving the right nodes. Check out the 'Permissions' page on the wiki.

    @Joeri1234: Go

    Please report bugs and requests to the issue tracker.

    what is the perm node for /lb toolblock and /lb tool i cant get it to work

  • Avatar of Joeri1234 Joeri1234 Aug 13, 2012 at 21:42 UTC - 0 likes


    I think there is a bug that chests are not rolled back correctly. I tested it myself. All block changes etc get rolled back correctly but not chests. Could you look into this please.

    Also is it possible to store the contents of a chest when it gets broken?

    thanks in advance.
