I set up a mastodon instance and I’d like to interact with my lemmy instance (midwest.social) from it. Looking at the logs whenever I query a post, it returns a 200 OK with no data, but if I query a post on lemmy.ml it returns data like it should. I must have something configured wrong on my lemmy server.

Here is the log for a query:

Error encountered while processing the incoming HTTP request: lemmy_server::root_span_builder: NotFound
lemmy_1     |    0: lemmy_apub::http::post::get_apub_post

I think I found out what was happening. I was trying to fetch posts that had federated from a different Lemmy instance to my lemmy instance and then I was searching using that post URL instead of the original URL. It was this one https://midwest.social/post/326295.

I guess the post has to have originated from the instance that I’m searching with or it won’t return anything.

Right, you can use the fedilink in that case (colorful icon).
