Creating exact copy of webserver

I have a VPS with a webhosting company. I wanted to create an Exact mirror and load it on a server at home to mirror the site. Is this feasible? If so, can I do it without loading any addition software on the webserver?

You should be able to use any ftp client. That's what I do with my web site except in reverse. I make the files on a local machine and ftp them to the web hosting machine. Ftp works in both directions. Your web hosting provider should have instructions for you to do this sort of thing.

rsync is another option.
