          Depending which 5.6 package you installed it may not have a password.  Try 'mysql -u root' to see if you really do not have a password.  Or you will have to refer to how to recover the root password in the documentation.

           

          By the way MySQL 5.6 is a VERY OLD release and will not be support for much longer and you SERIOUSLY need to consider upgrading to at least 5.7 if not 8.0
