Defining, seeing, and understanding setting up a test site in Dreamweaver CS6 after installing MAMP.

I bought MAMP PRO along with Design Extender, did the tutorial for installing MAMP (the interface looks different than the one on the tutorial). The tutorial said "define a site in Dreamweaver that references your testing server". I went out on the web and searched and watched hours of tutorials and feel that I did it correctly but I don't even know what I should be looking for with my site. I'm very frustrated. Anything I do says unable to connect, Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost... I don't even know where to start, what to look for, or what I've done wrong.

This is probably a basic, stupid question but what the heck am I doing wrong??
