 Um, unless you're restarting the server while doing this then you've just
 deleted the error log and nothing else will be written.

 This sounds like there is an external program managing the error.log
 rather than apache.  Are the error logs piped through a program?  Is there
 any cgiwrap or similar pogram involved? 
 
 Is NFS involved?
