Thank you for sharing this method for extracting the WordPress URL in a Kubernetes environment on a DigitalOcean Droplet. Your contribution is greatly appreciated by the community!

To add a bit more context for others who might come across this post: the command you’ve shared is a handy way to quickly retrieve the IP address of a WordPress service running in a Kubernetes cluster. This is particularly useful when the service is exposed via a LoadBalancer, which is common in cloud environments like DigitalOcean.

By executing export WORDPRESS_IP=$(kubectl get svc -n wordpress wordpress-kubernetes -o jsonpath='{.status.loadBalancer.ingress[*].ip}'), you’re setting an environment variable WORDPRESS_IP with the IP address of the WordPress service. Then, using echo "WordPress URL: http://$WORDPRESS_IP/" and echo "WordPress Admin URL: http://$WORDPRESS_IP/admin", you can easily access both the main site and the admin panel.

Thanks again for your valuable input! Feel free to share more tips or ask questions in our community.
