I was given 3 crt files from my CA issuer. I've done a lot of googling o.O but cannot find where to put these files.

I think they go in /etc/apache2/ssl

Is that right?

By convention the certificates should go in /etc/ssl/certs/ The key files should go in /etc/ssl/private/

But it is completely configurable.

For a default site, read the comments in the file /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl

It provides plenty of examples from which you can make your decision.

They go wherever your ssl.conf file (most likely) says they go. It completely depends on the distribution. Your distribution might even configure Apache's SSL features in the httpd.conf file. On Redhat-derived distributions, it's usually /etc/pki/tls.
