But when you are using a command file to run every night, that means the
information will not be real time. So a change made now to a wiki will be
reflected on the other one only tomorrow.

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.
