I'll post the answer for both phtml and html files.

Overriding phtml files

For example if you want to override site_name/vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/templates/cart/shipping.phtml, you will need to put it under /site_name/app/design/frontend/ThemeName/default/Magento_Checkout/templates/cart/shipping.phtml

Overriding (KO) html files

For example if you want to override /site_name/vendor/magento/module-checkout/view/frontend/web/template/summary/item/details.html, you will need to put it under/site_name/app/design/frontend/ThemeName/default/Magento_Checkout/web/template/summary/cart-items.html

Now html pages can be a hassle, you need to make sure the caches from your browser are cleared. If you're using the latest google chrome you can inspect element go to network tab and then tick disable caches, reload the page. Reason for this is that HTML pages are more cacheable. If this does not work clear you pub/static/frontend folder.

  • Nope still not working. I have done above things & I also run php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy & clear cache still not working.

If you want to override the html file in Magento 2.1 then you need to follow few instructions :

1: Copy html file from /Vendor/magento/module-catalog/web/template and paste in your theme (target directory) /app/design/frontend/vendor-name/theme-name/magento_catalog/web/template

2: Delete the pub/static and var from root directory:

rm -rf pub/static/*
 rm -rf var/*

3: Deploy by SSH command:

 php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

4: Refresh the page.
