I have installed MAMP and downloaded all of the relevant files of my live website using FileZilla - I have put the folder for this in my "sites" folder and when I set the root in MAMP to it - I just get an error message saying "Error establishing a database connection" - tried lots of different things, but can't seem to get round this one.

Anyone out there able to help?
