Need new self signed cert on vCenter 5.0

MY environment is vCenter 5.0 and two 5.5 hosts.  The certificate on my vCenter is expired and my Citrix XenDesktop controller will no longer let me spin up VMs.  

I need to update the certs on my vCenter and need guidance on how to do it.  I have found this article:

https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&docTypeID=DT_KB_1_1&externalId=2015383

but holy cow, that's a HUGE for a vCenter noobie!

Can someone give me some guidance?

Thanks

Cliff
