man find

Code:
> logfile
However, logs are rotated, so why would you want to do that?

Look in the configuration file from apache
Again why would you want to do that?
Logs are written in /var/log/

If you run the command
:> logfile

You will be using redirection to overwrite the contents of the file. The : is a null command that does nothing.

The find command can locate empty files using the -empty argument.
E.G. to find empty files in ~/Documents/, you could run:
find ~/Documents/ -type f -empty

Read the man page for find by entering "man find" in the terminal, or "man:find" in konqueror to read an html version.
Find is a very useful command. It would be worthwile to read the man & info pages for it.
