To delete the archive completely including the cumulative mbox file, do

echo > /path/to/mailman/archives/private/LISTNAME.mbox/LISTNAME.mbox
/path/to/mailman/bin/arch --wipe LISTNAME

To delete just the web archive without deleting messages from the
cumulative mbox file, just do

/path/to/mailman/bin/arch --wipe LISTNAME /dev/null
