I tested this in QTS 4.1.4 ...
Login to the QNAP device through SSH.

(ps: I use NANO for editing but you can of course also use VI or whatever)
Enable log files on Apache. To do this we will create a new [additional] Apache configuration file:

nano /etc/config/apache/extra/apache-myconfig.conf

And get the text following in that file:

CustomLog logs/main_log combined
ErrorLog logs/error_log
LogLevel info

Now we need to tell apache to reference this file, by modifying the Apache configuration file:

nano /etc/config/apache/apache.conf

add the following line at the end of the file:

Include /etc/config/apache/extra/apache-myconfig.conf

Finally, restart Apache:

 /etc/init.d/ restart

or with:

/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl restart

Logs can now be found at:
