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.


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

    @md5 How long does the 1.57 version update the LogBlock tables default size?

    5 minutes, 10 minutes?

    And when the server is shutdown in the middle of the conversion will it continue after the server is restarted


    For me it hangs the server while converting, tho a better option would be to let the server load 100% and then start converting.

    Any chance logging of sand / gravel falling, blocks holding items (torch, Sign, Etc), Stairs position (on Redo), Log position, and fix redstone lamp not rolling back. There has been some crazy griefs and logblock is absolutely failing the server without these features. As griefers are getting smarter and know how to abuse logblock not logging these / not rolling back these.

    @asbomine: Go

    /lb lookup area <area> since <time> chestaccess

    Or go in your config and change the default line limit for your tool.

    I love how I can look into how a chest was modified in-game. But how can I get a more complete look? It only shows the last 15 or so modifications. How can I check how it was modified further than 15 modifications ago?

    Our players table is full:

    2012-08-10 00:42:52 [WARNING] [LogBlock] Error while importing: 'INSERT INTO `lb-world_ether` (date, playerid, replaced, type, data, x, y, z) VALUES (FROM_UNIXTIME(1344551717), 65584, 1, 0, 0, '-289', 38, '1358');': Data truncation: Out of range value for column 'playerid' at row 1

    Could you please get the player ID upgraded to Medium or Small INT as well?
