Installation Problem - mySQL 5.6.34 on macOS X Server 10.11.6

I am trying to install mySQL 5.6.34 on my MacMini server (running 10.11.6). I chose 5.6.34 because the server is too old to update to Sierra. [The purpose of this installation is to install and use Mantis BugTracker.]

The installation appeared to succeed, but the suggested testing didn't work out.

In particular, mysqlshow did not include mysql in the list of databases, and

Prospero:mysql server$ bin/mysqlshow mysql
bin/mysqlshow: Access denied for user ''@'localhost' to database 'mysql'

although I am logged in and running this query as root (connected via ScreenSharing).

The listing of the data directory doesn't show up anything that I'm smart enough to recognize as a problem.

Prospero:mysql server$ ls -l data

Can anyone offer me help with this problem??
