Some versions of Confluence do not properly back-up the theme configuration. You should always make manual copies of your theme configuration by copying and pasting the various settings in to a text document or a page within Confluence. If you copy the settings in to a page within , enclose them in the Confluence noformat macro to ensure they don't get misinterpreted as wikimarkup.
