SSL cert private key?

When I generate a CSR and send it to a certificate authority they send me back the cert and I finish the process. My question is where is the private key, is this the CSR

If you generate your own CSR, then part of this process will be generating your server key at the same time.

Refer to the docs of whatever tool you're using to generate you CSR, for the location of where your key file is generated.
