Which is the database that commonly used in Linux?
How c++ will connect to that database?
How we create user interface in CGI using c++?

I'm assuming you mean CGI as in "Common Gateway Interface", used to implement web applications, rather than something to do with Computer Graphics.
CGI is just a specification of how a program will be called when accessed by a HTTP server. The protocol is described in many places. I typed CGI C++ into Google and all of the first page of results were interesting and useful.
Next time you need something well-known in a hurry, please consider going to a search engine - you'll most likely get your answer in more depth, and sooner, than you will here.

I can't think of a worse language for CGI than C/C++. A fork and library-load on every call, plus the traditional absymal string handling of C/C++ makes it a terrible language for the web.
I think you should investigate why you are being forced to use C++ for this project first.
Eric.
