What is it you truly want to do? I don't delete my log files as Apache is just going to recreate them for me. If I want to clear an error log file or something I just open a shell session (SSH) and run a command to clear out the entries.
Otherwise, if you have command line access you can use one of the suggested methods from Apache [httpd.apache.org].
