Via CGI it can be used to generate dyanmic content. Its faster the PHP for the most part. C++ is more likely to be used to make the PHP interpriter or server than for generating dynamic content.
I don't recomend it if all you want to do is make web sites. Its more useful for things like 3d game programing and embeded system development. It can be used for web development, but I wouldn't use it unless performance is a very high priority, even then the cost in programer time (because it takes longer to develop in C++ than in PHP for most web related tasks), is more than it would cost to upgrade to a biger/faster computer, not to meantion for the most part, web servers are limited by connection bandwidth rather than CPU time.
