How magento handles conflicts? What if I install two separate modules from different vendors where both of them customize a single template, let's say checkout/succes.phtml? I am expecting answers for magento

When multiple modules override a same file, Magento usually takes the one which comes first alphabetically according to Namespace_Modulename

The modules are collected in the following order:

  • Mage_All (collection of vital modules)
  • Other Mage_* modules
  • 3rd party modules
