First of all I've missed an important information to include in my first
question post. I am using osgeo-6.05 where MapProxy comes prebuild.

When I execute the command

mapproxy-util serve-develop mapproxy.yaml

It gave me an error as the following

[2013-05-23 16:57:33,558] mapproxy.config - INFO - reading:

[info]  * Running on
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/mapproxy-util", line 9, in <module>
    load_entry_point('MapProxy==1.5.0', 'console_scripts', 'mapproxy-util')()

  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/mapproxy/script/util.py", line 337, in main
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/mapproxy/script/util.py", line

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/socket.py", line 224, in meth

    return getattr(self._sock,name)(*args)
socket.error: [Errno 98] Address already in use

Since it tells the default port 8080 is used. I thought of a different
method. In osgeo-6.05 there is a separate menu

menu called "Start MapProxy". When I hit that option my proxy got
started without giving the above error. It produces the following
lines when it starts.

After that I used the link


and viewed the demo site.
