Hi,
I want to put mybb on a localhost to test things and modify them before putting them to a domain. However I'm a bit of a newbie and I just installed IIS7 and WAMP and I can't connect via FireZilla

Can anyone please help?

Thanks
Why did you post this in the MyBB.com forum?! This belongs in the support forums.
You don't need to use FileZilla, it's a local installation, you put the files in your local file system. If you're using WAMP, you don't need IIS for a start, but go to C:\wamp\www\ make a folder here called mybb or something, and put the files in here, then go to http://localhost/mybb/

Make sure you start wampserver first Wink I've forgotten a few times Smile
When I copy the files though it says there is an internal error? And I can't quite reach the bottom of it.

Any other ideas?
You need to make a database too, and then install it.
how do you know what to call it and name all the fields etc?
Database Server Hostname: localhost
Database Username: root

Leave the database password in blank, and for the database name put in what you created in phpMyAdmin. Go to http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ if you haven't already, create a new database and go back to the installation.
I haven't created anything on phpMyAdmin though. What do I need to do there? And how do I go back to the install? It's all PHP files.
All you need to do is create a database called forums, then go to http://localhost/(your forum dir here)/install/ and run the installer.
