I've gone about this differently than other responses I've seen (I'm
on digests, so there may have been more, but c'est la vie)

In my setup there are two servers, one holding the application (can be
iframed into other pages, or whatever you like) and the other having a
non-public version of the application.

I'm running precache2.php in order to pregenerate all the tiles, and
they are held in a web accessible directory on a host.

In the map file on the application server, I set the metadata in the
layer groups to cached
and set up the URL to the cache in the config.php

In this way you can have the application served from a responsive app
server, and the precaching and other 'heavy lifting' done on another
box entirely (or multiple boxes, whatever you like)

Of course, this is for a relatively small datastore, no more than
10gb, expanding out to approx 100gb cached images, so if you're
working with larger datastores, then you may run into problems. The
idea is still valid, however, as you should (with a little work) be
able to point the application to a tile.php on a different server.

Hope that helps (and isn't too bad a hack of poor Ka-Map!)
