    We can see here in the ---outputs:--- section that Wordpress was allocated a public IP, in this case It is exported with a stack output variable, frontendIp. We can use curl and grep to retrieve the <title> of the site the proxy points at.

    $ curl -sL $(pulumi stack output frontendIp):80 | grep "<title>"
    <title>User&#039;s Blog! &#8211; Just another WordPress site</title>

    You can also navigate to the site in a web browser.

    When you’re done, you can remove these resources with pulumi destroy:

    pulumi destroy --skip-preview
