I am new to mysql , recently I installed MySQL 5.6.14 on my RHEL5.9 x64 in my vmware workstation.But when I did some exchange to the default database which is 'mysql',something bad happened to me.When I did FLUSH PRIVILEGES on mysql command line,I could never find 'mysql' database.only 'test'could be seen.
Later I find how to find the database again.It might caused by the changes to the 'user' table in 'mysql' database.So ,I do the following and I hope this can you.
1.stop mysql service with "service mysqld stop"
2.start mysql service with "/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables & "
3.Login mysql with "mysql -u root -p"
4.These are finished in mysql command line:
>USE mysql;
>UPDATA user SET Password=PASSWORD('newpassword') where USER='root';
5.reatart mysql service with "service mysqld restart"

Now you can login successfully via using "mysql -u root -p",and you can find the database you want!
