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.

Which version are you using?
Gah, I just discovered that *nothing* has been logged since the update to 1.2.3 =/
Yes, mySQL is setup. I should have also stated I've been using LogBlock for several months without issue.
I bring up Spout because of this part in the documentation:
Logs what someone took from, or put into a chest, dispenser or furnace.
Spout plugin is required. It will be installed automatically when you enable chest logging.
And I haven't used Spout in sometime and I noticed that chest logging hasn't been taking place (from what I can tell even before 1.2.3.)
Do you even have a mysql database?
And LogBlock doesnät need Spout, set chest access in config on true.
I am using build 109 http:diddiz.insane-architects.net:8080/job/LogBlock/109/. Everything *seems* to be fine, however, the lookup tool (wooden pickaxe) doesn't work. I right click on a block and nothing happens. Permissions are set correctly.
Also, is there no other way to log chest access without using Spout?
Help, How do i fix this?
Its spamming my console.
Lots are getting this issue It was fine, then after the dev version it did that.
Do you have the groups above the default group inheriting the default group?
Everyone is able to use /lb toolblock I had to give my default group -permissions But now none of my staff can use it either
i dunno if a lot of you are getting problems because you are still using the old version here or not. but i recommend you check out their site
for the latest build.
also it is probably a good idea to bookmark that page and refer to it next time there is an update
I still wonder how you guys are getting such problems xD
Thank you so much! It worked perfectly :) Hopefully Diddiz will fix this soon, but for now I guess that is fine.
Same thing was happening on my server. I added the negative permissions for the following to my default group as a temp fix.
I use PEX and the only people with any log block permissions are super mods. For some reasons defaults can use the command /lb toolblock, lb tool, /lb me, and can use the tool block to see who edited a area. How do I disable this so ONLY people with the permissions for LB can use LB tools. Thanks :)
That happened to me as well, just keep trying and it will eventually download
We apologize, but we are having difficulties processing your download request. Please be patient while we try to repair your download request
I just didnt see that you provided one, thanks! :D
The logblock questioner download link doesn't work.
His just being stupied, because he don't know how to scroll down and read the 6th comment from the top.
I'm not sure that logblock logs chests by default? check your config.
Does the questioner need updating?
I've provided a version freshly compiled alongside the new CB1.2.3 libraries which I've thus far had no trouble with, is that not sufficient? What problem are you having?
