Note that for dates before the unix epoch getTimestamp() will return false, whereas format("U") will return a negative number.

<?php
$date
= new DateTime("1899-12-31");
// "-2209078800"
echo $date->format("U");
// false
echo $date->getTimestamp();
?>

In 32-bit system the unix timestamp will overflow if the date goes beyond year 2038 and this method will return false. In 64-bit systems this function will still work as intended. For more information please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2038_problem.

Miguel's comment is wrong - getTimeStamp() always returns a timestamp, this has nothing to do with timezones at all, as you can see below.

What's really happening in Miguel's example, is he is parsing the input dates in different timezones.

There is no such thing as "a timestamp relative to the timezone".

<?php

$d
= new DateTime('2016-03-11 11:00:00', new DateTimeZone('Europe/Rome'));

var_dump($d->getTimestamp()); // 1457690400

$d->setTimeZone(new DateTimeZone('America/New_York'));

var_dump($d->getTimestamp()); // 1457690400

Note that getTimestamp() does not return the UTC timestamp. It returns the timestamp relative to the set timezone, or the default server timezone. This also applies to dates in timezones with Daylight Savings.

<?php
// 11th March 2016 @ 11:00 UTC has timestamp: 1457694000
$d1 = new DateTime('2016-03-11 11:00:00', new DateTimeZone('Europe/Rome'));
$t1 = $d1->getTimestamp();

// 11th April 2016 @ 11:00 UTC has timestamp: 1460372400
$d2 = new DateTime('2016-04-11 11:00:00', new DateTimeZone('Europe/Rome'));
$t2 = $d2->getTimestamp();

printf("11 March: %d (diff = %d less)\n", $t1, 1457694000 - $t1);
printf("11 April: %d (diff = %d less)", $t2, 1460372400 - $t2);

// Prints:
// 1457690400 (diff = 3600)
// 1460365200 (diff = 7200)
