I would like to be able to override files in the ROOT/Administrator/components folder.
How is it possible?

I found this pdf file, but with no basic link to anything:

link to override plugin pdf

I can't seem to find the right plugin to install. Can anyone help me please?

So for example, if you wanted to override the com_content/views/articles/tmpl/overview.php component file you would place it in:


Replacing the protostar with your Joomla! Admin template in view.
