Local site installs working, then all of a sudden this one does not, using Dulicator

Duplicator support wrote this response:

I understand that you are not able to install your backup and got the following error:
Data too long for column …

This error needs to be fixed to make sure that the installation went successfully:

To fix this error before you run the installation, you need to change the column url type to LONGTEXT. You can find this column in the om7uh12e4cwp_yoast_seo_links

Alternatively, you can change the column type during the installation as follows:

Run the installation
Proceed until step 2
Open your destination website database using PHPMyadmin
Change the url column type to LONGTEXT in om7uh12e4cwp_yoast_seo_links table
If you can't change the column type to LONGTEXT, please try increasing the column length
Continue the installation

The destination is my Windows 10 Laptop so where do I change and how
“destination website database using PHPMyadmin”
I know how at my host, but not on my computer with Local.

Any tips or help appreciated

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.
