    Some thoughts:
    – Make sure that the WordPress version you have in fatcow is the same WordPress version you had in beaconhosting.
    – Are you using same domain name in fatcow?
    – FTP Reupload WordPress esp wp-includes and wp-admin folders in fatcow
    – If you’re uploading wp-config.php from beaconhosting, make sure to change the database username/password/hosting to the new database you created in fatcow in wp-config.php and re-upload

    Thanks for the suggestion, i will look through your points and reply back.
