Site create missing db and plugins

I created an additional site today (not sure if it matter, I have about a half dozen on the same server). Everything looked good. Ran as root.

ee site create --wpfc

However when I go to log in it redirected to the first time setup. I checked mysql and database exists but no tables. When I create the site old fashioned wp way by completing the setup I can get in and begin working on my site but I also notice the plugins don’t exist.

I just created two new sites last week and this did not happen. Looking at ee.log I see a fatal error during install:

2016-03-25 18:05:49,125 (DEBUG) ee : ^[[95mCommand Output: ,

Run `wp core install`.

Not sure where all the funny chars are coming from either but appears to be in my logs going back quite some time (i.e. ^[[95m, ^[[0m etc) Are those referencing time in ms for each output?
