Pixelfed is not networked to other instances

Bought VPS
ynh version (stable)
Access via SSH and web admin

I have installed Pixelfed on my VPS via the webadmin, created a user and made that user admin.
The problem is that the global feed is completely unpopulated/empty and my instance’s user is not discoverable via other instances of pixelfed or the broader fediverse.
Under Admin Dashboard - Instances, It says

Warning No instances were found

I click ‘Run scan’ to no effect.
I use the inbuilt diagnostics tool in Pixelfed and everything is fine apart from

ACTIVITYPUB instance actor cached: :x: false

Does anyone know why my Pixelfed instance does not integrate with the fediverse?

Many thanks in advance
