This is a simple solution and easy to implement with mysqldump backup of
the private and mysql to reload on the public one. This can be done
with a simple command file executed by a timer driven process overnight.
You could do this with a single MySQL installation if you massage the
exported sql file to rename the database from, say, wikidb (private
one) to wikidb_public before restoring.
