Sorry, but that is not the least bit helpful. We are not ready for RHEL 7, which is VERY different than prior versions. I don't really need the victim blaming for using an earlier RHEL release that is still fully supported and in widespread use.
As for /etc/my.cnf, that's where one defines the port, database location, log file, port number, and user, so they don't have to be placed on the command line.
Your response does not explain the command line steps necessary for creating a new database.

what has this to do with the my.cnf?
just connect to the correct instance and that's it
and probably get rid of RHEL6 because with systemd you don't need all
the crap around to start multiple instances, just a few lines in the
unit-file pointing to the correct config and mysqld_safe is also no needed
