You have to physically turn Mamp on, otherwise it will not work. Go to Applications - Mamp - MAMP and double click to open, then "Start Servers". You can then click on "open start page" to see if it works. It will probably ask you to enter your computer password. It is a good idea to drag Mamp to your dock, so that it is more easily accessible to turn off and on.

 

Also note that the following is missing the p from http://

htt://localhost/demosites/wordpress/wp-admin

 

It may be just a typo on the forum, but you never know.... B)

Also, make sure the path is correct. The path you use to connect may not be http://localhost/demosites/wordpress/wp-admin. For example, when I connect to localhost, I use http://localhost:8888. You can check this by running the MAMP application and clicking the "Open Start Page" button. Your browser will open, and you can see the URL that it uses.
