In a network install, when domain mapping is active for a custom domain, the following message appears on the wp-signup.php page when the network sub-domain is visited:

The site you were looking for,, does not exist, but you can create it now!

Steps to reproduce

  1. Map a network site "" to a custom domain "" using this guide:
  2. Visit the network sub-domain "" in a browser
  3. Observe the text on wp-signup.php which notes "" doesn't exist

The network sub-domain "" does exist so this text shouldn't be displayed.
