TileCache with Geoserver

When we use many layers in one map, we should better use Tilecache which stores all of those images in temporary in local computer, hence our map will load much faster than normal. Here are some ways to configure Tilecache.
======================================
1./ you need to have Apache server installed and make sure your Geoserver is available.

2./ Define your temp folder to store those temporary images and your layers which is already generated from Geoserver in "tilecache.cfg"
//temp folder
[cache]
type=Disk
base= C:/temp/tilecache
// layer from Geoserver
[cambodia]
type=WMS
url=http://127.0.0.1:8080/geoserver/wms?transparent=true
extension=png
layers= mango:cam_DistrictCenter
srs= EPSG:41001
#metatile= yes
metaBuffer=10
metaSize=20,20

3./ Define tilecache folder in "httpd.conf"
<Directory C:\wamp\www\tilecache>
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
Options +ExecCGI
</Directory>
