Found a script (see notes) for mirroring a web site — not sure it completely fills the bill (doesn't discuss Apache setup, etc.). I think it's mainly aimed at content mirroring which means it could be good for other purposes. The same thread had other suggestions (this uses rsync).

The deb package "mirror" uses ftp. If rsync is acceptable both ends then...


COMMAND='/usr/bin/nice /usr/bin/rsync --exclude-from=/etc/backup.conf -azxv --delete'

$COMMAND $SERVER:/ /mnt/hdc5
$COMMAND $SERVER:/usr/ /mnt/hdc5/usr
$COMMAND $SERVER:/var/ /mnt/hdc5/var
$COMMAND $SERVER:/home/ /mnt/hdc5/home

adjust paths accordingly and my /etc/backup.conf looks like...

and set up an ssh key and copy it to $SERVER so you don't have to manually type the password each rsync invocation. rsync is way more efficient than ftp.
