SharePoint 2010 - Fast Search "Failed to connect..." Error

This was just one of the many problems I had to deal with today! One of the common things that happens with a Fast Search setup is to have your self-signed certificate expire after one year. When this happens, you will get the following error in the application error log of your SharePoint server:
Failed to connect to Failed to initialize session with document engine: Unable to resolve Contentdistributor

The solution is simple enough, just install a new certificate!
Here are some helpful sites:
