One of the easiest ways of doing this is using replication. If you lock all tables and identify the latest binary log file and position and then take a complete backup. No writes should be performed until the backup has completed. Once we have a successful backup then restore the backup onto your extra server. When restoring the tables you can recreate these as MyISAM engines. Then you setup replication using the log file and position noted previously and start replication to the extra server. At a pre-determined point, stop transactions to your production server, allow remaining replicated transactions to be migrated across and then make the extra server the production server. This will minimize the amount of downtime.
