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

    I'm really looking forward in getting this plugin to work. I downloaded WorldEdit, it works fine. But I can't get LogBlock to work.

    I downloaded the file and put it in the plugins folder for my server, I reloaded the server and according to my CMD, LogBlock is working. When I type in the commands like

    /lb command

    It would say "No Database connected. Check your MySQL user/pw and database for typos. Start/restart your MySQL server.

    Can someone help me please? Much appreciated :D

    I get this when trying to /lb tp I am not able to spawn tools and such, even though I have the sufficient permission nodes. Any advice?

    world edit logging is hard and btw it checks using the player stats so if u do it with world edit it wouldn't say anything

    Here is my question, why not add logging for worldedit? It's so sad that one of my favorite grief logging plugins can't add the simplest things. I really do not want to migrate over to coreprotect but that seems to be my only option. Please do not say "Oh it's impossible to log worldedits actions" because it most certainly IS possible. When you make a world edit it logged in the memory, you can easily rollback someone with worldedit by doing undo 10 (name) but it of course only works when the player is online. It should be fairly simple to add worldedit support so please do!

    Open for custom plugins! Skype: bob7l.bob7l.bob7l

    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.
