I was told that the Ben Ish Chai says to there is an inyan to light candles on zayin adar. Where does he say this and what is his source?

    Is he talking about yahrzeit candles for Moshe Rabeinu olev hasholem, or another kind? – SAH Feb 23 '18 at 1:11

It is found in his Tikkun Zayin Adar. I couldn't find the sefer published online, but I did find a website which quotes at least part of it, in the middle of which it says:

וגם ידליקו נרות לכבוד משה רבינו עליו השלום, וכל המוסיף מוסיפין לו אורה ושמחה
