My companies production dynamic web servers ( Apache + PHP 5.1x) are using the Apache expires module and there is a clause inside http.conf as follows:

<FilesMatch ".+">
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresDefault "A0"

If I were to set inside a php script "Cache-Control" and "Expires", would it get eaten by this clause?

Normally I would test this on my own but having trouble convincing the Expires module to function on my workstation and the company Admin's are down at the data-center.

Making this answer/question community wiki. PHP does overrule Apache in regards to mod_expire.
