I'm working on a project with MapServer with PostGIS and I need to retrieve from my table and display a layer that shows some information like a street name.

What I have? I have my map rendered perfectly, showing all streets of a city, and I need to define a layer to show on the rendered street their names.

I've searched in MapServer Documentation about text layers but I did not found anything that actually help to solve my problem.

I've read the link suggested in the comments of this question and make this code, but it does not work.

  LAYER
    NAME face_guarulhos
    TYPE line
    CONNECTIONTYPE postgis
    CONNECTION "db stuff config"
    DATA "geomlatlon from ctageo.face_guarulhos"
    STATUS default

        METADATA
            "wms_title" "face_guarulhos"
        END

    CLASS
      NAME "Faces Guarulhos"
            OUTLINECOLOR 139 134 130
      COLOR 255 145 145

            LABEL
                COLOR 255 255 255
                OUTLINECOLOR 0 0 0
                SIZE 10
                ANGLE 0
                POSITION AUTO
                PARTIALS false
            END
  END

END
