The easiest way to debug this type of problem is to start with FoxFire 
and Tools -> Page Info and select the Media tab, then scroll down to one 
of the tiles and copy and paste the URL for the tile into a new window 
and see what it says. If there are errors from mapscript they will be 
displayed in the window.

If there are no error and the Media tab says that the image 0px X 0px, 
then it is likely that you have permissions problem with apache and the 
tile cache.

What system are you running?
What version of ka-map?
