after update mysqld no longer loads correct databases

We did an update last night and now we are experiencing a very odd issue.

When mysqld is started using "service mysqld start" or when the server boots up mysql server page in Webmin shows that only information_schema and test databases are available. If I run "killall mysqld" until no mysqld processes are left running, I can then run mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables & and the databases show up fine. It appears that the system has disassociated the mysql databases stored in /var/lib/mysql/ and I cannot find where it is pulling the others from.

Root is the user that the mysql server is using and the password is correct.

Any help would be appreciated as I do not want to reimage and reinstall everything like I had to do last time. I would prefer to figure out how to fix this as I am tired of reinstalling after every update.

Hmm, that's an odd issue!

Did you by chance load a MySQL version from a third party repository?

What you're describing could happen if there was a significant MySQL version change the took place.

If you're using CentOS, what output does this command produce:

rpm -qa | grep -i mysql

Returns This
