While compiling the php the below error is coming, and I see there is no libvoltdbcpp.a file exist, Please help me in fixing this.

Hi Harsha,

Did you do a "make" in the voltdb-client-cpp directory prior to compiling the PHP client? If you have not done so, please run "make" in the voltdb-client-cpp directory first. That will build the C++ client and generate the static library needed for the PHP client.
