LogBlock

LogBlock logo

Works 100% with 1.7.2

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

    Dont need a optimal response but Do you actually have to have MySQL knowledge to run this plug in?

    jamie:

    You can do so yourself using ALTER TABLE `lb-world-ether` MODIFY `playerid` MEDIUMINT NOT NULL

    I tried that, it ended up throwing errors...but need to look up what...

    @godgodgodgo: Go

    i have the same problem, i think its the formatting.. if u use phpmyadmin, just manually edit the table's structure to the values in the gui [edit] when doing so, the query looks as: ALTER TABLE 'lb-worldname' CHANGE 'x' 'x' MEDIUMINT ( 6 ) NOT NULL

    @jamietech: Go

    That's not the problem I'm having, I tried to run the mysql queries you said in a previous comment but they did not work.

    "I used this query: http://paste2.org/p/2101429

    and got this error: http://paste2.org/p/2101438"

    would be cool to separare permissions for rollback, I am sure for 100% this will rocks on all servers, cuz 99% of mods are unknown ppl to admin in rl. And rollback is very helpful for all staff, admin can't be 24/7 :) thx.
