Rsync is a reasonable option.

We've also discussed in the past having a "wiki synchronization" 
option so that pages edited on one wiki could be synchronized
with any edits that took place on another.  It's basically the
same algorithm used for simultaneous edits, repeated for each
changed page on the two sites.  But so far it (apparently) hasn't 
been critical enough for anyone to prototype or implement yet.
