Archive the existing hardserver log from /opt/nfast/log/hardserver.log and re-open as a fresh log file.

When run with no arguments, it will automatically archive the existing log to /opt/nfast/log/archive/hardserver.DATETIME.log (where DATETIME is the current date and time). The directory /opt/nfast/log/archive/ is created if it does not already exist.

Optionally, a single argument can be provided with the full file name to archive the existing hardserver log to.

This script must be run as root.
