the easiest way is to open the file in a write only mode.


Here's an excerpt from http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.fopen.php

'w' - Open for writing only; place the file pointer at the beginning of the file and 
truncate the file to zero length. If the file
does not exist, attempt to create it.

Hope this helps
