I would suggest looking into rsync, this seems to be the easiest tool for mirroring that I know of and the most effective, it'll only update what needs to be updated, as opposed to updating every single file between the two servers.

I don't use rsync myself as I do not do back-up servers but generally it's done via a small script that is added to crontab for say a daily execution.
