the main error is

EXCEPTION: lib/discourse.rb:93:in exec: tar: /var/www/discourse/public/backups/default/how-to-discuss-2021-03-04-084222-v20210302164429.tar: Cannot open: Permission denied

discourse is creating the file and entering wrong permissions
any solutions???

deleting the default directory in /var/discourse/shared/standalone/backups/ solved the issue
