[Tex/LaTex] Page numbers are missing

header-footer

As are as I understand, page numbering is automatic but I am not getting page numbers. The start of my document is as follows:

\documentclass[12pt]{book}
\title{Something}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{url}
\fancyhf{}
\renewcommand\headrulewidth{0pt}
\setlength{\headheight}{15pt} 
\pagestyle{fancy}
\makeatletter
\let\ps@plain\ps@fancy 
\makeatother
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\chapter{Introduction}

How do I get the page numbering started at the first page of the \chapter?

Makes no real sense, but is possible:

\documentclass[12pt]{book}
\title{Something}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\fancyhf{}
\cfoot{\thepage}
\renewcommand\headrulewidth{0pt}
\setlength{\headheight}{15pt} 
\pagestyle{fancy}
\makeatletter
\let\ps@plain\ps@fancy 
\makeatother
\begin{document}
\begingroup
\makeatletter
\let\ps@empty\ps@plain
\maketitle
\endgroup
\chapter{Introduction}

\end{document}
