localhost refuses to connect after trying to move live server to mamp

So I downloaded the files, moved them into the htdocs folder of MAMP. I also imported the SQL and then ran:

UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = replace(option_value, 
'http://www.example.com', 'http://localhost/test-site') WHERE 
option_name = 'home' OR option_name = 'siteurl';

UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content = replace(post_content, 
'http://www.example.com', 'http://localhost/test-site');

UPDATE wp_postmeta SET meta_value = 
replace(meta_value,'http://www.example.com','http://localhost/test-
site');

I replaced example.com with the site name and replaced localhost/test-site with localhost:8888/foldername/

This made 0 70 and 0 changes but now instead of my loclahost site saying error connectign to database, it says:

This site can’t be reached
localhost refused to connect.
Try:
Checking the connection
Checking the proxy and the firewall
ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

Any help as to what may have gone wrong? I usaully don’t work on pre-made sites so I have no idea as to what went wrong with creating a local version I could work off of.
