No, there's nothing telling you where those files should be placed
because it doesn't matter, as long as you pass the directory where they
are in MonoApplicationsConfigDir.

That doesn't matter for mod_mono. But, anyway, the application
configuration file should be in the same place as the assembly
(.exe/.dll). That's what the configuration documentation from MS says
and what we do.

The first place to look is mod_mono-x.x/README and INSTALL files. They
are updated, as well as the manual pages.

If instead of ranting you provide more details on how you configure
apache, you might even get some help.
