Deleting a Log File

You wouldn't think that deleting a log file would take so much thought, but it has.
After doing some testing that resulting in a 2GB + error file for NWC Inc.'s web site I decided to delete it.

DENIED. Because Apache was running, I couldn't.

Well, I didn't want to stop the processes just so I could delete the file - all those widget orders we'd lose would be a problem for the business folks, right?

But what else can you do?

;-) Share the logs directory, mount it under Linux and delete the file.
