Interesting question. From the PAN-OS CLI Reference Guide:

The following command lists the contents of the web server error log.

username@hostname> less webserver-log error.log

webserver-log — Lists contents of the specified webserver log file (press tab for a list of log files)

The CLI Reference Guide mentions the clear command but it does not apply to the web-server logs.

From this Palo Alto support page, the delete command can be used to delete specific files.

I would suggest trying delete ? to see the full context of the delete command.
