I am very new to Mathematica and I am failing in trying to do
something very simple.
I am have the following data:

x = {8, 36, 74, 96, 123, 152, 201, 269, 415, 460, 444, 579, 711, 731,
   602, 364, 151};

Which is a curve, similar to PDF function of Beta distribution:


And I am trying to fit it to:

PDF[BetaDistribution[\[Alpha], \[Beta]], x

finding Alpha and Beta values.

I will appreciate it somebody can give me a hint how to do this
properly using FindFit or
any other means. I am too embarrassed to post my modest attempts here,
but trust
me, I've spent few hours trying before posting :)
