I am new to using MAMP and I'm trying to load files from my hosted wordpress site onto my local computer.

What I have tried:

I have installed MAMP....FTPd my files into my working directory.... used MAMP preferences and pointed to the folder with my wordpress files.

I have imported my database I to my local myphpadmin...(matched the database name with wordpress.conf)

I added the user named in the config file... and changed the site URL to localhost/Documents/Magazine and home fields in the options table.

But when I type localhost/Documents/Magazine into my browser I get the error connection refused.

Any ideas wod be welcome.

First, have you tried to explicitly use http rather than allowing the browser to assume https e.g. http://localhost/Documents/Magazine. If your browser insists on converting http to https, try googling for something like make chrome stop redirecting http to https, and see if that helps.
Otherwise, I think you either need to configure the web server to accept https connections, or install something like stunnel, which maps unencrypted connections to SSL.

Thanks!! I seem to have gotten past the https issue. Now I get a 404 error. My real problem is that MAMP doesn't have good documentation (at least none that I can find about the free version).
