Extremely large stderr log file

Your post

     I have a file in Library/FileMaker Server/Logs called "stderr" and it is 450GB!!!

     Most of it is related to bulk email sending that I'm doing with ScriptMaster. I'll worry about figuring out how to avoid all this logging in the future, but right now I just want to delete this file so I don't have to worry about it bringing down the system by filling the hard drive.

     At first I thought if I dragged it to the desktop it would create a new file, and I could delete the old one, but it seems to maintain it's link regardless of where I put it (keeps appending the file in the new location), and I cannot empty the trash with it inside because it's "in use".

     Note: I'm not very comfortable in the command line without detailed instructions.
