Duration: 1m9s

We can see here in the ---outputs:--- section that Wordpress was allocated a Cluster IP, in this case It is exported with a stack output variable, frontendIp. Since this is a Cluster IP, you will need to port-forward to the service in order to hit the endpoint at http://localhost:8080 by running the port-forward command specified in portForwardCommand.

You can navigate to the site in a web browser.

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

pulumi destroy --skip-preview
