What is LogBlock?

LogBlock is an anti-grief prevention plugin designed by one of the most amazing plugin developers out there
the plugin consists on stopping griefers and even catching them in the process. The plugin can be found at bukkit.org ; It's a strong anti-grief prevention plugin that is a much need in your minecraft server. The plugin itself logs, and saves the grief / block change of everything ( which you enable ) on the server. So with this plugin I could pull out my trusty logblock wand and view who griefed my fountain! It uses MySql databases to save these massive logs so that you have no worries on having to have a overload of logs on the server database!


How do we set it up?

Spoiler:

What are the permission nodes?

Spoiler:

What are the logblock commands?

Spoiler:

Credits given to the LogBlock Creators, whom are probably some of the hardest working people out there, they deserve everything last appreciation and donations that they get! Logo taken from the logblock dev page at bukkit, i claim no rights on making it nor do I claim it as my own, it is property of logblock.

So... much... center...

I honestly prefer HawkEye just for the web interface, but this is a pretty good tutorial.

lol to the center joke.
It's just how I originally had it, since I was only going to be using this guide within my hosting community xD
I think I might post a guide for HawkEye Posted Image


Also did you know hawkeye and logblock and bigbrother are all teaming up to create one greifing prevention plugin called Guardian?

So they say. Development has slowed, LogBlock is still developing their own plugin, HawkEye/BB have gone missing leaving md5 alone. Quoted from the BukkitDev page:

Lead developers:
  • md_5
  • DiddiZ (Retired / Inactive)
  • oliverw92 (Retired / Inactive)
It's a shame really.. :l

Yeah, keep up the work. Good guide for starters. My only recommendation would be to make it a bit clearer.Some of it's quite bunched up, even just doings things like making a permission bold, and an explanation of what it does in italics underneath would look nicer with a single-line space in between each node for example.

logblock.hide
Description: 'Allows to hide from logging'
Default: op

logblock.tp:
Description: 'Allows you to use /lb tp'
Default: op

I appreciate the time put into the guide, but guardian will soon be taking over both hawkeye and logblock. Meaning this will be of no use soon.

Herogx, If you read the earlier posts you would see the conversation talked about Guardian, infact, Guardian may not happen at all saddly. Since what we have seen is that all development stopped on it.
And thank you for the kudo. Posted Image

Must say this was very helpful. Problem I am having however, is even after editing LogBlock/config.yml and changing the database name, user name, info, etc... I'm still unable to get logblock to communicate with my web host (godaddy, go figure) and properly write from my server folder (on my home based machine) to the database I specify.

It keeps giving the default information you listed above (default db paramaters) even after I've reloaded the plugins etc.


EDIT: Will post a script parse / log information to show you default values it keeps pushing towards.

That's permissionsEX failure, all you need to do is put

- -logblock.*
on a rank which you don't want them to have it
