It's actually easy. Replicate from the master to a local slave, and then
mirror the slave. That way you get consistancy of content. Remember that
conventional mirroring doesn't rely on a 24-hour window, it's usually done
daily (sometimes less often) at a set time.  All the content which isn't
actually in the database (images and such I assume) is even simpler.
Conventional mirroring scripts will do it.
