I recently installed mysql and apache from source, and php using apt-get. I wanted to install php with source, so I removed php package but accidentally removed packages named "mysql-common apache2.2-common etc..."

I don't remember installing any of those packages. The only thing I did after installing ubuntu on my desktop is installing mysql, apache with source.

My question is: Does ubuntu recognize installed-from-source programs as packages??


Yes it does. You can check in Ubuntu Software CenterHistoryInstallations.
