    $ php -f shell/compiler.php -- disable
    Compiler include path disabled
  • Clear all compiled files
    $ php -f shell/compiler.php -- clear

  • Ensure that compiler is disabled now by checking its status:
    $ php -f shell/compiler.php -- state
    Compiler Status:          Disabled
    Compilation State:        Not Compiled
    Collected Files Count:    0
    Compiled Scopes Count:    0
