can't login on mapped domains when w3tc page cache enabled

My domain mapping is setup like this:

Admin Mapping: original domain

Login Mapping: original domain

Cross-domain: no (i’ve tried yes)

Everything works fine until I enabled w3tc page cache.

If I go to I get forwarded to:


That fails to login, and then I get sent to: UNMAPPEDDOMAIN/ORIGINALSLUG/wp-login.php?redirect_to=MAPPEDDOMAIN/ORIGINALSLUG%2Fwp-admin%2F&reauth=1

I don’t know for sure, but I believe the issue is that for some reason on these mapped domains there is a re-write rule such that I’m getting mappeddomain/originalslug/wp-admin Which obviously doesn’t exist.

I’m assuming that it’s an issue with the W3TC re-write rules and the domain mapping plugin. The re-write rules created automatically in htaccess are as follows:

# BEGIN W3TC Page Cache core
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
